Review

“The charm of reading this book is that: always, and I mean always, the reader is satisfied with the result.”  Manuela Iordache

“Wow – this is a great story!”  Phil Rowan

“An enthralling read on many levels.”  Book Trail

Certainly exciting and riveting reading.”  Emma B Books

I really enjoyed the book.”  Pamela Lewis

“OUTSTANDING”  Haley Norton

It’s a must-read for mystery lovers.”

From the get-go (catchy title), The Sicilian Woman’s Daughter delivers an exciting multigenerational story. I enjoy reading fast-paced novels steeped in cultural drama. This one fulfills my love for mysteries and intrigue.

Linda Lo Scuro weaves the story about the daughter of Sicilian immigrants with layer upon layer of substance. Soak up the history and ride the turbulent waves of discovery as Maria learns about herself and the roles of women in the Sicilian families.

The novel The Sicilian Woman’s Daughter shows what it’s like to wake-up to your heritage and integrate that knowledge into your present life. It’s a must-read for mystery lovers.  Carolyn Bowen

A cracking good read

This is a cracking good read and it brings to life the Sicilian family that Mary/Maria has tried to forget for over 30 years. Mary is married to Humphrey, a banker with two delightful daughters and a grandson. They live in an upmarket apartment and she has just retired from teaching in a series of prodigious schools. Despite her seemingly Englishness as the tale unfolds we learn of her connections to a family of women who are definitely Mafia and of her dreadful childhood of abuse and neglect. She has carefully created her place in society through her looks and intelligence making sure that her Sicilian family stays out of her life, that is until she reconnects with Zia her mother’s sister and through helping her she begins to expose dreadfully deeds that have occurred and are still occurring due to the women in her family. Her life is then torn apart by realising that she is just the same as her Sicilian family and she needs them to help her when the life of her immediate family is at risk.. A story that will bring alive the heat and the underbelly of life in a Mafia controlled Sicilian village.  Ann Gough

This is an addictive read from page one to last and thoroughly enjoyable!

I have always considered women to be the 'power behind the throne' (I apologize to all those Queens like Her Majesty and her husband who has to walk BEHIND her) and this book proves it to be true. It was fascinating to read about how different her lives were depending on where she was or WHO she was that day.

This is an addictive read from page one to last and thoroughly enjoyable!
Great book!  Janet Cousineau

“Insightful, well written and I found the pace just right”

As I read this book I felt I was reading a true account of how ordinary lives can be turned upside down by family connections we try to remove ourselves (in this case the Mafia). Insightful, well written and I found the pace just right. The storyline took an interesting twist at the end which didn’t disappoint.  Dawn Dauvin
