A book that's impossible to put down! The true story of a pre-teen growing up in fascist Italy during the 1930's reads like fiction as it covers the imprisonment and torture of Paul Oreffice's outspoken and courageous father and his family's subsequent escape from Italy just a week prior to Mussolini's crackdown on all future emigration. The lessons that Oreffice learns from his parents and other caring adults in the country of his birth stand him in good stead as he conquers all obstacles during his meteoric rise in becoming CEO of one of America's corporate giants. An inspirational read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
