Mom (2)Author Geraldine D. Villalba bases this lush family saga on her own family’s history. She traces Gino’s legacy throughout the next century as he becomes the patriarch of the Catania family. They are a clan of dreamers, travelers, and optimists—and they all know the importance of loyalty and love.

This book  is a fictionalized account of the author’s actual family. She has combined 3 books into one (the first 2 previously published) so now we can find out the rest of the story!  This lovely lady will be turning 90 this month! Just goes to show you that it is never too late to achieve your dreams.
