ABOUT - The Sicilian Inheritance: A Novel
"The most anticipated novel of 2024 is actually a master class in leadership."
"I loved this epic tale of one woman’s quest to learn the truth about what happened to her great-grandmother a century ago. A gripping story of motherhood, ambition, misogyny and female power, now and then, it is also a great mystery that kept me guessing until the final pages."
—J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Friends and Strangers
