Beautiful, strong-willed, luscious Vittoria wants it all — colorful, soft, satin, lace, beautiful clothes and shoes; excitement; anything but Montalluro, her isolated mountain village in Italy, cut off by mud, snow, ice, road bandits, and the financial yoke of a cruel Capeddo. But how to escape? Who can be trusted? What secrets does Vittoria hide? Why do the village women despise her? At what price to others, including her daughter, Caterina, does she seek out a new life in the new world? Who is this woman, Vittoria? And why would she entice the young, innocent, open-hearted bride, Alfonsina, into her web of ambition and revenge? A non-stop page turner, Vittoria is a passionate glimpse of desires, broken paths, and dreams not even imagined fulfilled that you will not forget!
