Nancy Stolfo-Corti grew up fast. She communicated for her parents, wrote their letters, handled all the "complicated" business in English. She traveled with her father to Baking conventions as he rose in prominence with his successful Dayton bakery. With a flair for art and a passion for fashion, Nancy wins contests, gets awards and finally a scholarship to study abroad. Before she knows it she's packing up and leaving Dayton far behind as she lands in London for a prestigious internship to be a fashion designer. At 21 she is a full fledged fashion designer and signs on to work with a Florentine designer. There in Florence she falls in love with a man who she will come to marry and start a family.
Everyone has a story, but not everyone's story has the fable-like qualities of Nancy's. Knowing the facts is like getting the bones; the real experience is hearing the beautiful, striving, talented, romantic and yearning voice. This is a story that floats between Italy and America, between generations, between immigration and emigration, between the ancient and the modern, the call to commitment, the push to separate...
