About the 4 Books
"The Only Way to Paradise" - Four women in a therapy group fall under the influence of the movie “Enchanted April” and ask, “ If Italy is so wonderful and therapeutic, what are we doing in Ohio?” They take off for Florence, packing their worries with them. Their Italian adventures are not at all what they expect. While pursuing the 500 year old mystery of a murdered princess, as well as becoming embroiled in a porcelain heist, each woman discovers the ultimate mystery resides inside of her. Agape is the balm that, when applied gently to their souls, causes these heroines to transform, embracing this virtue themselves. Some discover romance, but all discover healing that puts them on the road to recovery http://www.ggvandagriff.com/books/.
"The Last Waltz: A Novel of Love and War" - A romantic historical epic, the award-winning The Last Waltz: A Novel of Love and War begins with the glittering life of Amalia Faulhaber, socialite, nurse, and finally baroness. Amalia is immersed in four phases of Austrian history: the restless energy that proves to be the last days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1914. She survives its destruction and dissolution. Through her husband she is deeply involved in its attempt at democracy and eventual descent into fascism. Politically inclined herself, her vastly differing romances follow the fate of her suitors and the part they are destined to play in history.
"Cankered Roots" - Combine a rifle-toting widowed grandmother with a angst-driven young widow struggling to find what went wrong in her family’s past, and you come up with Cankered Roots, the first volume in a series of five about the adventures of genealogists Briggie and Alex, aka RootSearch, Inc. Who knew genealogy could be such a dangerous hobby? The truth lies in the unexpected, secret-laden genealogy of Alex’s father’s family, that the brilliant sleuths uncover amidst comedy and danger http://www.ggvandagriff.com/blog/.
"The Authurian Omen" - A Celtic scholar is brutally murdered when she discovers a clue to a fifteenth century manuscript that could prove the identity of King Arthur. Determined to find the ancient relic and avenge her sister’s death, Maren Southcott begins a quest that immediately puts her own life in danger. Her search weaves through the ruined castles and monasteries of ancient Wales, while she is unwittingly stalked by a psychopath who desires the relic to incite an “Arthurian revolution,” killing the royal family, making way for the return of the “Once and Future King.” Carrying her investigation on despite personal crises, Maren can depend on no one, and is determined to locate the relic before the murderer can strike again.
About the Author, GG Vandagriff
"I am, at this writing, 63 years old, and for the last eighteen months I have turned my eyes toward Italy. My new book “The Only Way to Paradise” is the result of intense immersion in the Florentine and Tuscan culture, and most of it was written there. Of course, the art and landscape are spectacular, but what makes my heart sing are the people. I think that they are born with a genetic tendency to agape (unconditional love). I have experienced so many kind and loving experiences at their hands, most of which are chronicled fictitiously in my book. I plan at least two more in the same setting–a mystery and a time travel." -- GG
