Imagine Italy in the 1930’s.. In a small village in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvio, children are playing in the street. A car careens around the curve in the road and speeds towards them. The driver is Benito Mussolini, the Italian Premier.
He runs over and kills a child.
His passenger, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr. is horrified.
He tells Mussolini to stop the car, but Mussolini refuses and says, “What’s one life in the affairs of the State?” This incident becomes an international scandal and is front page news for weeks in the American papers.
My historical novel, The Incident at Montebello, is based on this true story. From February 20th through the 24th, the eBook version is free on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AKW16CE
Here’s what readers are saying:
“Our book club just finished discussing this fabulous book. We all agreed that it is a beautifully written, carefully researched, compelling story! The novel captures you from the start, with a little known incident in history. This book combines history, romance and a thrilling plot into one delightful page turner. You need to read this book!”–Beth J.
“From the first page I was intrigued and couldn’t put the book down…Moed’s book brought to life a place and time period unfamiliar to me. By the end of the book, I felt as though if lucky enough to travel to Italy, I would recognize Montebello and all the characters. Moed exquisitely married historical facts with an enticing story. Great book!” –NH Girl
