LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
In “The Passionate Palazzo: When Rome Was All the Rage” (published by AuthorHouse), author Elizabeth Guider’s new historical novel, readers watch a young American find herself through a mash-up of love and life trials.
“In this arresting first novel about love and liberation, Italy is not just a place of popes and piazzas but a cauldron of heady politics and equally heated passions,” says Guider.
Catherine Davidson finds herself melting into the life of the Eternal City. Each day brings new revelations to her as she beholds women taking to the streets to demand their rights, homegrown terrorists kneecapping their hapless targets and poor immigrants swelling the city’s underbelly. As she moves around the city hoping to move away from her southern roots and to prove to herself that she is a strong, independent woman, she finds herself in situations over her head.
As readers move through “The Passionate Palazzo,” they find themselves exploring life, love and a sense of oneself as the story crescendos to a momentous decision.
Guider hopes that, after reading her book, readers see that “love is a complicated emotion that can be shaped not only by sexual attraction but by the ideals we try to live up to. And sometimes being immersed in another place, in this case Rome, can help clarify what choices a character ought best to make.”
