FATE'S RESTLESS FEET 1911-1913
Book Two of THE LAST ITALIAN: A SAGA IN THREE PARTS
Brothers Gianni and Renzo Como land with an elite Bersaglieri regiment in Tripoli, Libya, as the Kingdom of Italy declares war on the Ottoman Empire. What was expected to be a quick and glorious conquest devolves into primal struggle as Italian forces face attack from all sides. Renzo, charged by his family to protect his younger brother, puts his life on the line to live up to his duty during a treacherous battle fraught with confusion, courage, and unimaginable cruelty.
Despite dire warnings, Angelina Scrivatti undertakes the perilous journey from Castrubello to America to claim a promise of marriage. She eventually arrives at a northern Michigan mining town to discover the man she loves struggling with guilt and despair. Their efforts to find happiness soon become swept up in a storm of ethnic violence that leads to a night of inconceivable tragedy — and one final chance at personal redemption.
