Meet a local author at La Cantina 54 Honeys Lane King Valley

Meet Vivien Achia, author of Marrying Italian: When love is not enough, and buy her book at a special price of $20.

Vivien grew up on a farm near Tarrawingee, and married a much older Italian immigrant, Eliseo Achia, who was a partisan in Italy at the end of WWII. 

Her book  is a love story which has something for everyone: cultural contrasts and parallels; the delights of Italian cooking and culture; passionate romance and blind rage; depression, drugs and despair; and a joyful family reconciliation in Italy.
