Michael P. Mastroianni is an Italian-American with relatives in America and Italy. Inspired by the experiences of his grandparents, the author hopes this novel will break down the stereotype of Italians as gangsters who can’t complete a sentence without cursing, killing someone, or cheating on their wife.
He has worked as a teacher, counselor, principal, and college instructor. He has written numerous articles and conducted workshops in the United States and Canada. Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, the author now lives in Rockledge, Florida with his wife, Pilar. He has two sons, Jarrod and Dominic. He plans to return to Italy soon to relax at a sidewalk café, drink expresso, eat gelato, and enjoy life the Italian way.

I truly enjoyed this e-book -- I originally read this book in hard cover, and when I saw that it was now available online, I wanted to be sure I got an online copy as well.
Since I am of Italian descent, I was drawn in simply by the title of the book. Then I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the story from beginning to end. It paralleled my personal family story in many ways, and I enjoyed the romance as well. Cheers to the author for a very well-written book! Thank you, from a fellow Italian American!!!
