Sometimes a journey back into family secrets becomes so riveting, you can't help but be transported. For author Dominic Smith, his newest novel, Return to Valetto, transports readers to a near-abandoned town in Umbria, Italy. Dominic shares a story rich in history, resilience, and courage.
Dominic explains the book's connection to Italy and how his research evolved during his travels to become historical fiction. This memorable, engaging and moving story is filled with a kind of magic taking readers to another time and place that is a combination of real and imagined.
Also on Speaking of Travel, Mary Tantillo founded Dolci di Maria after creating delicious desserts inspired by Italian pastries for her children with allergies to gluten and dairy. Today she designs decadent desserts for people with specific dietary needs and lifestyle choices that everyone can enjoy.
And Justin Belleme, founder of the JB Media Group and publisher of Romantic Asheville. Com, shares new information about how brands are applying a regenerative model to take less and give back more.
A must listen. Only on Speaking of Travel.
