Evangelina Settembrini Lisi is without a doubt the narrating voice of a full and adventurous life, overflowing with deep emotions. Within these passionate, highly autobiographical stories, the author brings to life with her memories a piece of the Italy that “was”, and gives us a glimpse into key moments of Italian history. She paints a fresco with vivid, intense and realistic colors in the style of a Vittorio de Sica film.
Evangelina was born in Puglia, a region in Southern Italy. At the age of twenty, she moved to Trieste, a city in Northern Italy with her newlywed husband, Luigi, and where her son Paolo was born, who has given her four splendid grandchildren: Roman, Paris, Alex and Mason. She received a Master from the University of California, Berkeley, where she also taught. Nowadays she lives between the enchanting San Francisco Bay Area and her magical medieval home on the shores of Lake Trasimeno, in the ascetic region of Umbria, Italy.

Angel Mommy is a moving and compelling account of the nightmarish world of bulimia, one which few people experience firsthand. The author has the courage to allow her readers entrance into this world and the desperate struggle, at times one of life or death, in which she has been engaged for most of her life. A normal, bright and attractive teenager, she gradually slipped into the cycle of binging and purging which became the driving force of her existence, and which threatened not only her life, but the lives of her unborn children. Ultimately, it is the love for her son and daughter which has given her the courage to live, and to write this sensitive and inspiring book, which provides a testament to the strength of the human spirit.
In the battle of his life, the prince of this scripture is in the beginning lost and unable to see what is right. He ends up confused with his will and courage all gone.
Then as the battle is about to start, an avatar begins to speak to the prince. In the second chapter, this God-realized avatar begins his lessons by teaching the prince about the soul.
He quietly starts to speak, “My prince, the soul was never born, nor shall it cease to be. There was not a time it did not exist, and no time shall come when it will not remain. It is untouched, unassailed, unharmed and eternal.”
So begins one of the many lessons taught in this ancient scripture. The prince listens and begins to understand the proper path to emancipation and spiritual greatness. And by understanding, the prince lays down an empowering journey for all. His path ends as a guiding light to all those who have longingly felt the homing instinct of the soul.

Stacy Mantle has been described as “…the Erma Bombeck of animals” by readers of her online column. Witty and insightful, the author leads her readers on a series of adventures based on actual events. The book begins with the arrival of Malachi and Aquilla, two rescued wolf dogs, and progresses through the life of Tristan, a very intelligent coyote, his neurotic sidekick Roscoe (a beagle), and the abrupt arrival of nine indoor house cats.
The result is a hilarious, inspiring and wildly entertaining collection of interconnected stories. This is a comedy, a romance and an adventure novel, all woven together with a philosophical approach to life. It is the life of a woman who has raised wolf hybrids and coyotes in the city, and has been chased by elk in the mountains of Colorado. It is the story of someone who has brought nature into her home and has learned to live in relative harmony with animals of all species even, on occasion, the human species.
