“The Feathers of Fortunato”
The Secrets, Success and Survival
of an Italian Immigrant Family
Sparked by her father’s fanciful stories of his family’s history, the author’s third novel, The Feathers of Fortunato, interweaves the shocking details of her ancestor’s scams, secrets and survival shenanigans in the American Land of Opportunity at the turn of the 20th century. Blending actual historical events and characters into this family lineage, three main protagonists intermingle with Suffragists, Mafioso mob leaders during Prohibition, Broadway starlets, the Haute Couture of World War II in Paris and aviation pioneers all the way to the moon. Thoughtful insights and fresh perspectives introduce the reader to the family’s hidden strength and often-untold journeys, which served as building blocks for generations to come.
SUE DeMARINIS is the author of three novels. Her debut novel, The Baby Between Strangers is a novel telling the tale of two very different and determined women who are connected by the baby that helps them find their dreams. Her second novel, The Station Master’s Wife, reveals the effects and scandals that the railroad brought to Oregon when it arrived in the 1880s. This book was a TOP PICK in the reader’s choice of SOUTHERN OREGON MAGAZINE in Fall 2019. It is now available on Audible and iTunes as an audiobook.
An Oregon resident since 1984, Sue, who retired from her 30-year career as the first woman chiropractor in Southern Oregon, writes and lives in Ashland with her teenage daughter and very hyper, ball-fixated yellow lab puppy.The Feathers of Fortunato is available at Bloomsbury BooksTopic: Bloomsbury Books Virtual Author Talk and Slide Show on "The Feathers of Fortunato"Time: Aug 6, 2020 07:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)Join Zoom MeetingMeeting ID: 781 2614 5220Passcode: hxdy41
