The intriguing plot not only entertains readers but serves as a conduit to better understand rural life in Sicily." -Primo Magazine "I absolutely adored this book from cover to cover. Everything about it evoked small village Italy. The characters and events were completely believable, as well as memorable, and the book managed to provide me with a strong education in opera . . ." -Historical Novel Society "We are overtaken by these characters and their village 'glistening in its golden glow from the setting sun.' Within these well-crafted pages we find beautiful descriptions of the Sicily and its people LoCoco clearly loves, and the seeds of hope available to all." -John Keahey: Author of Seeking Sicily and Hidden Tuscany Vincent B. LoCoco writes a heartwarming piece of historical fiction . . . He captured the essence of the Sicilian culture, especially regarding the value of ancestry and music . . . A Song For Bellafortuna is a beautiful tale of antiquity."- Readers Favorite 5 Star Review "... Vincent B. "Chip" LoCoco again takes the reader on a figurative and literal journey through Italy in a spellbinding, historical fiction novel of a young man's desire to free his Sicilian village from the domination of one family's long reign . . .If you are interested in all things Italian; if you are interested in human relationships; if you are intrigued by the states of the human dimension; if music or opera are your loves, A Song For Bellafortuna is a must-read." -Italian American Digest "The author paints a picture of the era before motorcars, when agriculture provided the most employment. One gets the feeling of the slower pace of life. Journeys take longer. Distances feel greater. . .The author has a stylized voice, giving the book a fairytale feeling." -Italophile Book Reviews
