A 1970s love story
In1970s New York, a neurotic Italian-American man is inspired to write a novel about his love affair with a quirky Broadway actress who inspires him to pursue his life-long dream.
Michael Coniglio is at his wit's end. His girlfriend, Angela, announces in front of the local coffee shop crowd that she has a new lover. The emotional fallout leads him to lose his office job, giving his boss the long-awaited excuse to fire him. Michael goes home to his parents looking for support and professes his childhood dream only for his father to remind Michael that he will never amount to anything.
Just as Michael is about to give up on life, he meets a woman who changes his life. The chatty and quirky Elvira Vaughn brings flavor to his world. The innocent, bright eyed, artsy young woman, ran from an abusive home to become a Broadway actress in crime-riddled New York City. Suffering from the depression of her past, the now thirty-year-old looks to a higher power for an answer. Can Michael and Elvira overcome the demons of their past and find their way into each other’s hearts?
Finding Forever is the humorous love story of two old souls that finally collide, reminding us that love exists even in the darkest of times.
Richard Vetere, Author and Screenwriter
You would be hard pressed to find an intelligent, well-written romantic novel today. It’s been
several decades since The Notebook was a huge success.
Along with that the genre of
Romantic Comedy has all but vanished in Hollywood. Anthony Sciarratta with his Finding Forever successfully bucks the trend. In his stream-lined novel people do meet, they do fall in love and their partners not only bring them satisfaction, they also bring them stability.
Set in an authentic working class world, with flourishes of humor and modern angst, Finding Forever is a
comforting and thoughtful read about romantic love.
Miles Fisher, Editor of Italian America
An insightful novel that depicts the difficulties a relationship can experience in spite of the love that's clearly present.
Finding Forever doesn't pretend that love makes everything easy, and through the narrator's relationship with his newfound lover, it will show how all loving relationships are - at one time or another - confronted with the question: What is love worth?
A truly profound question posed to us readers by a remarkably young writer.
Kim Russo, Author of The Happy Medium: Life Lessons from the Other Side and Your Soul Purpose: Learn How to Access the Light Within
Finding Forever may be fictional, but its story is jam-packed with soulful truths and powerful insights. In this rare gem, the author tells of one man’s internal struggles as he navigates growing up during the 1970s. With a string of serendipitous events, resulting in an impactful plot twist, the young author brings us on a delightful journey of inspiration and simultaneously teaches us the biggest truth of all: There is only one power that can transform our souls and carry us through from the brink of darkness to the brilliant light of our soul. It is the only power we are all ultimately searching for and that is the power of LOVE. Bravo to the young author, Anthony Sciarratta, for understanding these truths at a very young age and for bringing them directly to us through this incredible love story.
