Dear Reader,

Thank you for stopping by!

We are so thrilled to announce our latest novel, The Good Left Undone, coming April 26, 2022. The Good Left Undone tells the story of the Cabrellis, a hardworking family of Tuscan artisans with long-held secrets. Set in contemporary Italy between the turn of the last century and now, Matelda, the current matriarch, fears her family story will die with her, so she sets out to share the truth before it’s too late. Based on a true story, with themes of craftsmanship, loyalty, love and loss, The Good Left Undone will take you on a breathtaking journey next Spring! You can read more about the novel & pre-order your copy here today.

Matelda, the Cabrelli family’s matriarch, has always been brusque and opinionated. Now, as she faces the end of her life, she is determined to leave no stone unturned, including her own mother’s revelation about her two great loves: her childhood friend, Silvio, and proud Scottish sea captain John Lawrie McVicars, the father Matelda never knew. . . .

In the halcyon days of the past, Domenica Cabrelli thrives in the coastal town of Viareggio until the day her beloved home becomes unsafe as Italy teeters on the brink of World War II. As her journey takes her from the rocky shores of Marseille to the mystical beauty of Scotland to the dangers of wartime Liverpool—where Italian Scots were imprisoned without cause—Domenica experiences love, loss, and grief as she longs for home. A hundred years later, her daughter, Matelda, and her great-granddaughter, Anina, face the same big questions about life and their family’s legacy as Matelda contemplates what is worth fighting for, and when to let go. The Cabrellis have survived so much, and it is only through the transformative power of love that they can hope to truly heal. But Matelda is running out of time, and the two timelines intersect and crash together in unexpected and heartbreaking ways that lead the family to redemption.
