Filippo Berio has teamed up with Hodder & Stoughton to offer you the chance to win a copy of Juliet Grames’ captivating and huge-hearted debut The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna – out now in hardback!
If Stella Fortuna means ‘lucky star,’ then life must have a funny sense of humour.
Everybody in the Fortuna family knows the story of how the beautiful, fiercely independent Stella – who refused to learn to cook and swore she would never marry – has escaped death time and time again.
However, even the best-known stories still have secrets to reveal… and even after a century, Stella’s is no exception.
No woman survives seven or eight deaths without a reason. So how did Stella? In a tale which spans nine decades, two continents, and one family’s darkest, deepest-buried truths, the answer awaits…
Set against a vivid backdrop of rural Italy and 20th century Connecticut, The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna is a fierce and funny tale of family and independence, which follows the life (and deaths) of one truly extraordinary woman.
