The Woman in Red

The Woman in Red

Today is a great day! Today is the reveal of the cover of my daughter’s upcoming book. As my daughter has said “When The Woman in Red was still just a bunch of words, scratched into my notebook I allowed myself to daydream about what it could look like. What image of Anita would my publisher use? Would it be a historical image or something new? I had an idea of what I wanted, and well, let’s just say the designers at Grand Central Publishing went above and beyond what I dreamed up. ”

I am so very proud of her, it is not just a book cover, but the work itself is really a masterpiece. Now, you would expect a father to say this, but there is a host of reviews that confirm my assessment of the work, such as the following:

“The Woman in Red is an epic tale of one woman’s fight to take control of her circumstances to create the life of her dreams. Anita Garibaldi is a modern woman in the 19th century who led with her heart despite circumstances so dire, most mortals would give up. Her passionate affair with Giuseppe Garibaldi freed her from a provincial life into one of passion, danger, and purpose. Ms. Giovinazzo has crafted a spectacular story in this stunning debut.”

-Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of Tony’s Wife and The Shoemaker’s Wife

“Anita Garibaldi is exactly the kind of courageous woman whose astonishing story of defiance and dedication — to freedom and to her passions — I’ve been craving. Told in her bold and unflinching voice, The Woman in Red by Diana Giovinazzo brings this brazen, complex woman — and the man she fought beside — vividly to life.”

-Erin Lindsay McCabe, USA Today bestselling author of I Shall Be Near To You

“Diana Giovinazzo establishes herself as a worthy new voice in historical fiction with this irresistible tale of Anita Garibaldi: firebrand, lover, soldier, mother, revolutionary. Garibaldi isn’t just fierce, she’s ferocious. Her unstoppable energy propels this novel forward through tragedy and triumph, soaring all the way.”

-Greer Macallister, bestselling author of The Magician’s Lie and Woman 99

The book will be available August of 2020, I am looking forward to its release.
