Grazie, the first novel of award-winning playwright and actor Lucia Frangione is out in the world and making a splash. It was recently excerpted in the recently-released summer issue of BC BookWorld. Grazie is a gritty, spiritual story of forgiveness, accountability, and rebirth that follows traumatized mother Graziana and her strong-willed daughter Hazel as they navigate the aftermath of the life-altering death of Graziana’s violent stalker. The abrupt news of his passing and its resulting catharsis land Graziana in the hospital and Hazel suddenly becomes the ward of Grandpa “Grumpy” Herman.
