welcome to the blog for my recent book: 


a story for louise 







   A Story for Louise tells the story of how I found my relatives in Italy many years after my grandmother's last contact with them.

    I will use the blog to tell some stories that did not make it into the book, and to talk about some of the things I have learned about traveling in the Campania region of Italy, which includes Naples and the Amalfi coast. 

    I invite your questions and comments, and I hope that you will enjoy the book.

    You might be inspired to think seriously about making your own voyage of discovery. My story is proof that you do not necessarily need documentary evidence. All I had was verbal family history, which proved to be very reliable.

    I expect to have the book available in Italian within a few months.

    Feel free to make your comments in Italian or English.
