Set in Chicago during the 1940s and 1950s, this novel of Italian American life is populated by hardworking immigrants whose heroism lies in their quiet, sometimes tragic humanity. At the center of the novel is young Carmolina, who is torn between the bonds of the past and the pull of the future-a need for home and a yearning for independence. Carmolina's own story is interwoven with the stories of her family: the memories and legends of her Grandmother Doria; the courtship tales of her father, a gentle policeman, and her mother, a lonely waitress; and the painful story of Doriana, her beautiful but silent sister. "Understated, lyrical and intensely imagistic, De Rosa's tale of Italian ghetto life stands out from other immigrant narratives by virtue of its artistry."-Kirkus Reviews

Tina De Rosa is a wife, mother and a remedial massage therapist who lives in a small town in Western Australia.Since the age of thirteen, Tina has dreamt of writing a spicy romance novel. Her passion and determination for writing has led her to become a first time author of her book Taboo.Tina plans to keep on with her writing interest, and has already started her second novel.
