The Women of WHC are pleased to welcome award-winning author Lisa Scottoline to discuss her book Loyalty on Tuesday, December 5 at 12:00 pm on Zoom.
This lecture is free and open to everyone, but RSVP is required.
About the Book:
Loyalty is an emotional, action-packed epic, set during the rise of the Mafia well before the events of The Godfather. This novel transports the reader to 19th century Sicily, a dramatic and ruggedly beautiful island where lush lemon groves and mouth-watering cuisine contrast with a turbulent history of colonization and corruption. Giovanni is kidnapped as a young boy and grows up in a madhouse. Years pass and Giovanni meets a beautiful isolated girl named Lucia. They set out to bring his kidnappers to justice, getting an unexpected assist from septuagenarian Alfredo, who is secretly Jewish, but practices his religion undercover. The characters meet in a monumental showdown at the Sicilian sulfur mines, a place described as hell on earth. There, secrets will be uncovered, identities discovered, and the battle for justice fought to the death.
