About Ciao Bella

When her husband, Ugo, joins the Italian Resistance, the Canadian Grace becomes Graziella and goes to hide with Ugo's family in the countryside. When Ugo fails to return, even after the war is over, Grace begins to feel stranded and isolated, especially since Ugo’s family has never approved of his marriage. The arrival of a young American soldier makes her remember her long-lost life as Grace, and she begins to dream about leaving Italy. Are love and loyalty permanent, or does the horror of war remove certain obligations? A compelling combination of romance, adventure, and serious thought, this slim novel is sure to appeal to many audiences.

Gina Buonaguro was born in New Jersey and now resides in Toronto. Janice Kirk was born and lives in Kingston. Ciao Bella follows up on their first successful novel, The Sidewalk Artist. They are now working on their third novel together. Gina and Janice are represented by John Pearce at Westwood Creative Artists.  For information about Westwood, see here.
