A sparkling debut that will make you believe in the power of love, family, and magic
In Suzanne Palmieri's charming novel, The Witch of Little Italy, you will be bewitched by the Amore women. When young Eleanor Amore gets pregnant, she returns home to her estranged family in the Bronx, called by the "Sight" they share, which now grows strong within her. She has only been back once before, when she was ten years old, and while everyone else remembers that summer of sun-drenched beaches, laughter, and cartwheels, Eleanor can't recall anything earlier than the moment she left the house on the last day of her visit.
With her past now coming back to her in flashes, she becomes obsessed with recapturing those memories. Aided by her childhood sweetheart, she learns the secrets still haunting her magical family, secrets buried so deep no one knows how they began. In the process, she unlocks a mystery over fifty years old: The Day the Amores Died, and reveals once and for all a truth that will either heal or shatter the Amore clan.

‘witches’—able to see the future and cast spells. Campbell transforms
Eleanor from a shy, abused girl with severe, magically caused memory
loss into a secure woman who remembers everything—including the
powerful secrets of the Amore family…Campbell makes each character’s voice
unique while capturing the mystical atmosphere of witchcraft, ghosts,
and old secrets.”
