Release Day Blitz & Giveaway : Farewell, my loves by Jen Tirone


Cover Design: Hang Le

Release Date: December 12, 2016
Inspired by a true story. Love. Passion. Obsession. There was no way to distinguish one from the other in my life. Nothing in this world could destroy a bond as fierce as ours. Or so I believed… Because life interfered. Impulsive decisions, reaped unyielding consequences. Fate had a way of making you question your sanity. Loyalties were blurred. Priorities, poisoned. And destiny… destiny dispelled all our beliefs. In the end love was just too consuming. Tragic even. Without a doubt, love... crossed many unfathomable lines.

Farewell, My Loves by Jen Tirone is a heartbreaking story of fated love based on a true story.  Gianna, born in the early 1940’s into a traditional Italian family, is adored from the minute she enters this world.  Her family’s closest friends, the Moretti’s, adore her just as if she were their own, especially their four year old son, Giorgio.   Cementing a bond that would last a lifetime, Gio dotes on Gia from the time she is born.  Their friendship grows with them; Gio always looking out for Gia and Gia never leaving his side.  That they would one day be married was a given to their families.

When Gio is forced to immigrate to America with his father, Gia is heartbroken but vows they will one day be together again.

Several years later, Gio returns to marry Gia and bring her to America.  With hearts and flowers in her young eyes, Gia follows to begin her new life.  But Gia isn’t prepared for all of the changes and she struggles with the dreams she envisioned and the reality of her future.  Will Gio and Gia’s love sustain them through all of their struggles and danger that seems to be everywhere?

This book was breathtaking, amazing, phenomenal, stunning; I could go on and on.  I had such a visceral reaction to this book and still find it on my mind hours later.  I do not anticipate forgetting about this story for a long time to come.  Farewell, My Loves takes the reader through immense joy and shattering heartbreak all in 25 chapters.  Ms. Tirone did a spectacular job of pulling emotion out of the reader, which is a spectacular gift for any author.  Read this book. You won’t be disappointed…just make sure to grab the Kleenex.

If I could give Farewell, My Loves all the stars in the sky I would, but I am limited to 5.  Jen Tirone, you earned every single one.  I am definitely looking forward to all of your future works!

About the Author
There's nothing Jen loves more than the 'beauty of doing nothing', though you'll find her devouring a book in bliss if she’s not lost in her world of writing. She's a Miami girl to the fullest with an accent that makes her sound like a native Spanish speaker, but in actuality she can only defend herself in the language at best. This Colombian- Italian descendant loves her pasta, espresso, wine and empanadas, and there isn't a dessert she can say no to. Her stories have pieces of her edgy heart woven secretly between the pages and at the core of most of them is the essence of a true story. Inspiration comes to her mostly through melancholy music and morbid family sagas, but random occurrences like a good night's sleep can do wonders for her imagination.
