My Book Review on Beneath The Mimosa Tree By Stephanie Verni:

The is my book review on  Beneath The Mimosa Tree by Stephanie Verni.

Annabelle Marco and Michael Contelli are both only children of Italian-Americans. Next door neighbours since they were five, then they both receive their parents’ constant attention and are regularly subjected to their meddlesome behaviour. In high school and then in college, as their relationships moves from friendship to love. Annabelle finds herself battling her parents, his parents, and even Michael. She feels smothered by their interference and seeks independence through an unplanned and unexpected decision that she comes to regret and ultimately alters the course of her life, Michael’s life, and the lives of their parents.

Set in Annapolis, Maryland, New York City, and London, England.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Beneath the Mimosa Tree examines both Annabelle’s and Michael’s journey over the span of self-discoveries, the nature of well meaning families and the sense of renewal that can take place when forgiveness is permitted.

I really enjoyed reading this book as it was like reading Annabelle’s and Michael’s diary entries of their roller coaster ride relationship from friends to lovers. I really believe that the  author Stephanie Verni has created a story of what happens in everyone’s lives at some point within their life and how people express their feelings they’re keeping bottled up inside of them.
