About the Book
Following the war, Gustavo, a sergeant in the Italian Air Force, met a kindred spirit in Elisa, a hairdresser in her family salon. Diplomatically navigating the etiquette of the time and place, including Elisa's idiosyncratic, larger-than-life father, the two married and began their adventure together by emigrating to New Jersey.
Through hard and diligent work--including owning their own business and real estate--Elisa and Gustavo built a happy and enviable life. Today, they enjoy their retirement surrounded by generations of family.
Their story is an American Story.
