Award Winning Author Gina Iafrate Announces New Romantic Fiction Novel, 'Bestowed By Love And Splendour'

Iafrate's sweeping, extraordinary story lines reveal the richness of the human experience told through the eyes of finely drawn characters.

    WILMINGTON, NC, January 17, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Author Gina Iafrate has announced the release of a new romantic fiction novel, 'Bestowed by Love and Splendour'. Gina Iafrate writes sweeping family sagas that allow readers to travel the globe without leaving home. Like fine pieces of music, her books are layered, providing readers with intricately formed mental images, punctuated by dramatic movements. Gina's extraordinary story lines reveal the richness of the human experience told through the eyes of finely drawn characters.

The new romance novel is the breath-taking story of a broken-hearted wife and mother who is taken away from a tormented life. On the exotic island of Sardinia, she becomes hypnotized by nature's beauty; the cloudless sky, the emerald blue hues of the sea and the gentleness of the people.

But fate strikes once more. Destiny takes over and transports her to a world beyond her imagination, allowing her to find peace, love, and splendour.

In 'The Girl From The Cornfield', it is 1950 and Giuliana Ferrante is growing up in a sleepy town deep in the Italian mountains. Her young life is rocked to its core by a vicious attack that shatters the peaceful existence that she and many around her have always taken for granted. Giuliana, determined to make a future for herself, flourishes by working tirelessly toward her education, securing a legal degree and ultimately a successful position in the business world. She conquers all with kindness and love, managing to rise above the painful memories of her youth. This sweeping, inspirational tale hurdles across time, countries, and characters as it explores how love can heal, reconcile, and restore.

Iafrate is also the author of 'The English Professor'. In that book, Andrew Robertson, an introverted, middle-aged professor leaves his unremarkable London life to embark on a journey to Sicily where strangers welcome him kindly. In this Mediterranean setting, he develops a burning infatuation for another man's wife. Falling into each other's arms, Andrew and Francesca both satisfy the longings they have felt all their adult lives. Their union results in a child. But Andrew must go back to London and Francesca must protect herself, Andrew and their child from the violent reach of her husband.

'The English Professor' was a finalist in the Book Excellence Awards'. Gina has received praise from readers and reviewers alike. One stated, "A fascinating tale of victory of over injustice where love , grit and determination conquers all." Another said, "A captivating story, hooked after the first chapter and I couldn't put it down." Another stated, "All men and women should read this author to understand their own relationships. 3rd book I read by this author. I enjoy the imaginative way that she has captured the realities of women's life experiences and yet made the adventures understandable rather than scandalous."
