STORYTIME AT THE VILLA MARIA by Constance Walker

STORYTIME AT THE VILLA MARIA 
by Constance Walker
 
Meet…
Dominick, who married “the most beautiful woman in the world”…
Sophie, who is haunted by terrifying memories of the Holocaust…
Ella, who made “sweet apple pies” for her war veteran husband…
Tom, whose music lured women into his arms…
Artie, who is plagued by the ghosts of long-dead soldiers…
Frank, who can’t let go of his yesterdays, though a better tomorrow beckons…
 
Join them and others as they gather every Monday night in the library at the Villa Maria to share their memories, their fears, and their dreams.
 
STORYTIME AT THE VILLA MARIA—the unforgettable book about life lived and still to be lived, and about the mysterious threads of joy and heartache and love that are woven into every life—including your own!  
 
A charming novel of senior citizens, storytelling, nostalgia, and a world gone by but not forgotten.”
EXCERPT:
STORYTIME AT THE VILLA MARIA by Constance Walker
 South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1939
 The tuxedoed emcee pointed to the last couple on the dance floor and motioned them  forward.  “And your winners of tonight’s Pavilion Dance Hall contest – Miss Mae Agnes Adams and Mr. Dominick Ricci.”   Dominick and Mae Agnes accepted the envelope
containing the two one-dollar bills and bowed first to the other dancers and then to the audience and then Dominick’s eyes searched and found the table where the beautiful redheaded girl was sitting.  “I wish I had won you, instead,” he thought.  The redhead
looked at him with her sad brown eyes as if she heard the words and then quickly looked down at the table.
“And now everyone on the dance floor,” the master of ceremonies said and the girl’s face disappeared behind the crowd of eager dancers.

BIO:  Constance Walker is the author of THE SHIMMERING STONES OF WINTER’S LIGHT, LOST ROSES OF GANYMEDE HOUSE, IN TIME, and WARM WINTER LOVE among other works of Gothic and contemporary fiction
