characters The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna

Juliet Grames Ë 9 Summary Read ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ë Juliet Grames characters The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna For Stella Fortuna death has always been a part of life Stella’s childhood is full of strange life threatening incidents moments where ordinary situations like cooking eggplant or feeding the pigs inexplicably take lethal turns Even Stella’s own mother is convinced that her daughter is cursed or hauntedIn her rugged Italian village Stella is considered an oddity beautiful and smart insolent and cold Stella uses her peculia. A favorite Where to even begin I m surprised I don t see five star reviews for this perfectly written compelling story of an Italian immigrant family The author is also an editor and it shows in the clear intentional writing I read Stella Fortuna s story over a couple weeks alongside other books and it s unusual for me to take that long to read a book It was easy for me to pick up and hard to put down with each session At the beginning there s a learning curve because there are several characters with similar names but there s a family tree included that helps with thatThe story begins with the birth of the first Mariastella Fortuna born to young parents Antonio and Assunta in Calabria Italy I learned so much about Calabria s history After the first Mariastella passes away another daughter is born and she is also Mariastella a second chance for these parents especially the mother to protect her This Stella however has several brushes with death over her lifespan seven or eight incidents in fact That s only part of the storyThe heart of this story is the living breathing characters and the shifting and evolving family dynamics between them They move from Italy to America and adjust to a new country together some better than others Antonio the father is demanding and wants not only his wife but his daughters too to be submissive to his authorityBoth World Wars happen one while the family lives in Italy the other while they are living in America It is deeply movingly a story of family and it s no coincidence the story is told insightfully by a family member It felt so authentic so raw and achingly real that I just knew I would find out it was inspired by fact and the author s own family once I read the author s noteThere s so much to tell you and so much I want to leave out about this epic story There are strengths than I could take the time to list here I have read few books of this caliber that nail why I read The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna is a remarkable indelible story of sisterhood family forgiveness and strength over any hardship or adversityTrigger warning Abuse though it is not gratuitous and is not what the book is aboutI received a complimentary copy All opinions are my ownMany of my reviews can also be found on my blog wwwjennifertarheelreadercom
