The Road to Chianti

     Set in Italy in the year 1977, The Road to Chianti follows two young orphans as they struggle to find a place to call home.

     When their parents are killed in a devastating accident on the eve of the Epiphany, nine-year-old Alessandra DeSantis and her other brother, Salvatore, are left alone. With no one to care for them, the children soon end up in a run-down orphanage far from their home in Chianti. Still emotionally scarred from losing their parents, they now face an even greater challenge-the cruel Agostina, who works Alessandra and Salvatore to the point of exhaustion.

     Deciding they must escape, Alessandra and Salvatore flee in the night and unknowingly embark on a harrowing adventure across the Italian countryside. With Agostina’s goons hot on their trail, Alessandra and Salvatore vow to do whatever it takes to survive, and above all else, find their way home to Chianti. But one nagging question always hangs over them-what will they find when they finally get home?

      An action-packed journey through cobblestone streets, dark forests, and gorgeous piazzas, The Road to Chianti explores the power of love to triumph over adversity and the importance of having a place to call your own.
