A message from India…

“Your autobiographical book makes for spellbinding reading – increasingly so by the page. Your experience growing up in the mid-1900s in an Italian-American family highlights the universality of the human condition. I experienced many common experiences growing up concurrently in India: close-knit families, male dominance in society at large – countered by strong parental empowerment of daughters like us. Your travel experiences in India and elsewhere were fascinating. May your tribe prosper and grow!”

With warm wishes,
