THE ITALIAN IMMIGRANTS' DAUGHTER (by mother & daughter)
If you grew up with a NONNA, you'll relate to these stories told by mother and daughter raised by Italian immigrants, most notably, Antonica Cabras Mossa from Sardinia, Italy. Author Gina Mossa Molino shares anecdotes of growing up in the 1930-40s in Brooklyn, New York and on the island of Sardinia under strict Italian immigrant parents and grandparents. In 1946 at age 12, she was plucked from American life and shipped across the ocean with her two siblings and mamma after their papa Giovanni died young and tragically in Baltimore. Her daughter, Suzanna Molino, shares memories of growing up with Nonna Antonica, using vintage photos, amusing and emotional stories, and describing the continued connection today with their large Mossa famiglia still in Sardinia.
