Layers Of Veronica Book One

Layers Of Veronica, Book One - Napoleon by Emilia I. Rutigliano

About The Book:
They say that when a student is ready, a teacher appears. What they don’t say is where to register, and how to matriculate in that teacher’s class. That is a divine gift. Veronica had it all: the looks, the brains, the personality and the wardrobe. Not to mention a perfect husband, a fabulous career and two adorable children, until the perfect husband leaves her for another woman. Thus begin the daily routines of a typical New York City immigrant with ambition whose teachers keep appearing, and for whom divine interventions keep affording new opportunities. The new American Dream. Though it starts like ordinary connections going through the tried and true, each relationship continues to delve into parts of her own universe that Veronica didn’t know existed. A universe that is suddenly open to her. It’s lovely when a brilliant virgin of meager means and a heart of gold meets a brooding billionaire whom only her love can tame…and they wed, have children and live happily ever after. But what about the other eight or so billion people on earth? This is a different kind of heroine…Welcome to Veronica’s World.

My Thoughts:
This is an interesting book. Though I found it a bit.....schizophrenic. I had to sometimes read twice the same paragraph so I would understand what was being said, and continue on with the story. I do look forward to the other two books in this series.

About The Author:
Emilia I. Rutigliano scored fiftieth percentile on her SATs…and on her LSATs…and on her BAR…Sigh…But she nevertheless survived, and seems to be doing OK. She practices Law in Brooklyn, New York. She was born in the former Soviet Union, and emigrated in 1979. She is happily married to the same crazy Italian she’s been with since college, who suffers from a severe addition to travel (still in acute form). Together they are doing a somewhat passable job with their three precious darlings (who are now teenagers, thus elaboration is not necessary). Which is why Emilia writes about Veronica. Veronica, though…is interesting. And Emilia knows interesting. So she weaved the tale about the interesting characters, places and events from her own life. It is remarkable how if you choose to view a subject objectively, it becomes downright artistically gorgeous. So Emilia views and shows Brooklyn Russians as gorgeous, and the Barese intricacies as gorgeous, and she even tolerates Paris, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia for the reader’s interests.
