Bookreview : Our Italian Journey

A truly wonderful journey


Imagine living in Italy for one full year. This was always the dream and 
promise made to each other.

Ilene and Gary Modica sold almost everything they owned to spend a year
in the land of Gary’s Italian grandparents, to walk where they walked,
eat what they ate, and live in the shadow of history.

Few places evoke the stirring passions and romance of Italy, where the
simple act of sharing a glass of wine, a perfect pizza, and good conversation
is an art form. Be prepared to immerse yourself in this beautiful country
and live vicariously through the couple's authentic encounters.

You’ll also discover:
How their dream and desire for a genuine experience with a true Italian
family came unexpectedly true

How, through this journey, they eat and drink their year through Italy
visiting eight regions and forty-six cities, including Sicilia and their
new Italian birthplace.

Our Italian Journey is a travel memoir of an adventure that has forever
changed the lives of this Arizona couple. Through experiences and humor,
they invite you along their spellbinding journey, exploring quaint villages
steeped in tradition and local culture. Come take a glimpse of Italy through
the eyes of these new Italian citizens and experience firsthand the Italian
zest for living “La Dolce Vita,” in this compelling read.

My review

What a truly wonderful journey! The authors took us - readers - to Italy.
It was very nice reading and following their adventures and I hope another
book will follow soon! 

I certainly will recommend this book to people who like to read wonderful 
travel memoirs.

Without no doubt, I give Italian Journey a 5 star rating!

Bookreview: The Epic of God


In early times parables were used to make practical and spiritual points, 
provoke thought and to enlighten.

The Epic of God is a speculative fictional account of the epic story of our
heroic god. Though fictional this story is based on Biblical history, hints
and prophesy, taken from scripture, made alive and knit together by the
narrative of a watcher angel.

My Review

It took a while when I started reading the book, due to the title and due to the
topic. However, when I started reading, I was fascinated by the way the author
re-told famous stories on his own perfect way. Is it one of my favourite books?
No. But it was very well told!

I would recommend this book to Christian Readers and I want to give a 4
star rating on 5.
