| June 5, 2023 | 0 Comments

In the picture-perfect town of Scheggino, Italy miracles do happen. Handsome and easy going, Agostino Urbino, has a life most would envy. He spends his days serving up delicious meals, coordinating weddings, and romancing women at his villa-turned-hotel high in the Umbrian hills. When he meets Anna Wilson, the American who has just bought an apartment in her grandfather’s hometown, his comfortable little world turns upside down.

Despite her slew of buried relatives in the local cemetery, Agostino sees a woman who sticks out like a sore thumb and has an annoying habit of stirring up trouble. Though they come from two different worlds—she is an independent city girl, and he comes from a long line of farmers—Agostino decides to help Anna connect with her local relatives. During the journey, startling discoveries about his own past make him question everything. As he and Anna dig deeper into the history of their beloved region and their families, they stumble upon long- hidden secrets, including the story of an abandoned monastery from one of Italy’s darkest moments. Unwrapping shocking answers, they find themselves drawn together despite their differences, making them believe anything is possible.

Author Anna Wilcoxson, who grew up in San Diego, California, in the 1960s. A trip to Italy in 2009, sparked the idea for a series of novels based on stories she had heard as a child about her immigrant ancestors. “In Secrets and Promises: The Story of an Italian American Family,” and “The Deathbed Game,” Anna introduces her readers to the tiny Umbrian village of Scheggino and its lovable, if quirky, inhabitants. “Sinners and Saints” is the third and final installment in the series. Wilcoxson divides her time between San Diego and Scheggino, Italy.

“Sinners and Saints” is being released on June 29, 2023 by Acorn Publishing. Books published by Acorn Publishing are distributed through Ingram Spark. Readers can order from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo Rakuten, and many other book retailers, including brick-and-mortar stores.
