Sicily: A Heart's Journey: "The title of the book says it all. A more appropriate title is difficult to imagine. Author Mary Tolaro Noyes takes the reader on a heart-felt journey, an adventure, one might say, into her heritage and the island that is Sicily. The book is a series of stories, first-hand accounts of Mary’s journey to find and explore her roots. . . . Mary closes the book with an Epilogue that ends with a clear understanding. 'I have realized the world that comforts my soul, quickens my passion, and inspires my life.' Interestingly, I, as a reader, felt the same way about my own heritage. Thanks to Mary, I finally had the words to express my own life-long connection to my roots. Mary’s fondness for family is contagious. And so it should be!"
Catherine Accardi, review in Sicilia Para, Fall 2018.
