About the Book

Family Secrets: A Vengeance of Tears

Family Secrets: A Vengeance of Tears captures the essence of a Sicily that no longer exists except in the memories of those who lived there during this era after World War II, where deception, passion, and love battle and nothing is as it seems.

Disdained by her father and facing an arranged marriage, young Angela Rosarno yearns to be loved for herself. She flees her home in California and travels to Sicily into the arms of Santino Camastro, a man she has come to love only through his letters though never met. Wooed and rushed into marriage, she learns, too late, that her new husband is not the man who penned the letters. Determined to uncover the truth, Angela's actions set off a series of betrayals and murders. By the time she discovers that her husband's brother Antonio is the man she truly loves, she is hopelessly trapped in Santino's ruthless world of ambition and greed. A world that pits father against son and brother against brother in a duel to the death. How will she escape to save herself and her children from a prison that was created by her own doing? When deception, passion, and a mother's love collide, will Angela be able to risk everything she values, even the man she loves, to win freedom for herself and her children?
