WILMINGTON, NC, February 10, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Award winning author Gina Iafrate has announced the release of a new romantic fiction novel, The Professor's Daughter. The Professor's Daughter is the sequel to her first award winning book, The English Professor. Readers of The English Professor clamored for a sequel. Set in Italy, the new romantic fiction novel allows readers to immerse themselves in the life of Gracy and her adventures in love and the trials and tribulations she faces.
"During my signing events, many readers expressed to me how much they enjoyed The English Professor and a number of them encouraged me to write a sequel about his daughter Gracy," Iafrate stated. "They were also very curious to know more about the island customs and wanted to know more about the sites there. Sicily is a piece of heaven surrounded by the sea - Mare Ionio, Mar Mediterranean, Mar Tirreno. I am not Sicilian, but I fell in love with the island and the people touring it on several occasions. Some artists and friends of mine, encouraged by my descriptions, were motivated to choose Sicily for their yearly summer vacation."

The English Professor:
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 sensuous Mediterranean setting, he develops a burning infatuation for another man's wife. Falling into each other's arms, Andrew and Francesca both satisfy and heighten the emotional and physical longing 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.
Bestowed By Love And Splendour:
A breath-taking story of a broken-hearted wife and mother who unexpectedly finds the universal bliss takes her away from a tormented life, far across the ocean. 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.
Due to the success of her first award winning novel, The English Professor, Iafrate is developing a new novel titled The Professor's Daughter.

After the death of her father, Gracy's saga continues, guided by Andrews's lessons in kindness and love.
Iafrate is also the author of Releases From My Soul, a new collection of anthologies, crafted through a distinctive and intriguing combination of true stories, adventures and experiences from her life.
