Varina Palladino’s Jersey Italian Love Story

Varina Palladino’s Jersey Italian Love Story

By Terri-Lynne DeFino

Terri-Lynne DeFino lives in a log cabin in Connecticut, but she’s a Jersey girl at heart. Writer, mother, cat wrangler, and self-proclaimed sparkle queen, Terri began writing when she was seven.

Critically praised for her “unique gift for language” (RT Book Reviews), “intriguing characters” (Booklist), and “charming” storytelling (NJ.com), Terri-Lynne DeFino delights with VARINA PALLADINO’S JERSEY ITALIAN LOVE STORY—a captivating feast of a novel about a lively, tight-knit Italian American family whose members are as loving and loyal as they are stubborn and opinionated. While three generations of Palladinos may hold onto their cherished traditions of food and famiglia, the world beyond the comfortable confines of their longtime New Jersey town has grown more complex. But every Palladino must discover for themselves that change can be good, even if growth can be scary, and the love of your crazy family can get you through—even though it often drives you around the bend. (Includes brunch)

A fun and funny, wonderfully exuberant, and incredibly wise. These endearing characters—their voices and stories— will be with me for a long time to come. I didn’t want to say good-bye. –Jill McCorkle, New York Times bestselling author of Hieroglyphics
