Farewell My Life: Buona Notte Vita Mia by Cynthia Sally Haggard (Book Review #666)

Farewell, my life is a historical fiction written in three parts. The story was primarily set around the time when the Nazis rose and so it has many war scenes.

The literature matched the time set of the story. The author kept the descriptive nature of the history and matched it well with the characters and growth of the storyline.


Angelina, for instance, was a widow born into an Italian- American family. She had two daughters and discovers that a man is interested in courting her daughter, Grace. This does not bode well with her. Grace is a beautiful Violinist who happens to have a sincere character personality as well. The dynamic relationship between the mother and daughters were fascinating.


Since this historical fiction is set around the 1920s–1930s, it is apparent that the men are in charge and women’s needs and desires are second best. However, the author manages to weave a nicely polished novel and a good ending, satisfying the reader’s fantasy mind.


I would recommend this book to people who like to read historical fiction and happy endings.
