Présentation de l'éditeur

Nothing is greater than the force that tears a family apart, except the force that brings it back together.

Spanning half a century and crossing the globe to New York, Colombia, Italy and Las Vegas, Tesoro traces the challenges Veronica Picone faces as a daughter excluded by her family for thirty years. Just seventeen when she is ordered to leave home, Picone is thrust into the social and political upheaval of 1960’s New York with no place to belong. Through her eyes we experience the world of a woman who moves through decades forging a life and career, living within miles of the family that won’t have her. When Alzheimer’s erases her mother’s grudge, their delicate reunion begins, unearthing a shocking secret kept from Picone since birth. Working against time, she chooses to become her mother’s caretaker and rebuild connections with her fractured family.

Tesoro offers hope to anyone who seeks the transformative power to forgive or be forgiven for family love gone awry. It is a gripping testament to the human heart’s ability to mend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mystical realm of human sensation 7 avril 2014
Par Kenneth J. Anderson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Tesoro is a towering personal, artistic, and professional achievement. Veronica Picone’s work has biblical dimensions in its extraordinary human story, emotional power, and sacred teaching.

“A life in itself can never make an artist great,” said William Packer, who explained that greatness in work lies in formal command and (writerly) presence . . . never afraid to take on the great themes—yet the goods have to be delivered in terms of the art.

Emotional response is what I offer here, and this is my confession: Tesoro takes my heart out, puts it in my hands, and I weep into it, for Veronica, myself, all of us in shared humanity. While reading this book I coin the term “crying glasses,” a spare pair I reached for because I didn’t mind them getting wet.

Catharsis comes through Tesoro, a testament to the author’s great life and art. Actually, I cannot judge this book. Human truths in this book judge me. I turn last page and look up wiser now; seeing Veronica’s victory over birth and redemption of her mother for my own possibilities to heal, live, and love.

Story now lives in me.

Veronica Picone shares her moving journey to reconnect with her siblings and most importantly reconcile with her Mother and know her Father. This beautifully and uniquely written story touched my heart and left me speechless. I cried for her, laughed with her and supported her every step of the way.

I am in awe of the author's compassion, honesty, creativity and ability to forgive and move on. Her incredible story left me hungry for more and questioning my own family ties.

Bravo Veronica!!

A beautifully written book, with vivid descriptions, that tells an amazing story of a dysfunctional family, survival, loyalty and love. I was unable to put the book down and could not believe that the author was revealing her own life story....difficult as it must have been. Many of us can see glimpses of our own lives; family relationships help to form who we become as adults. Looking forward to other books from Ms Piccone. I highly recommend it!

Veronica Picone is an excellent storyteller, and she does so with pure honesty and love. I found myself connecting with her in many of her struggles and life experiences. I love her style of writing, creating a movie for us as we see the story of her life unfold.
This is a wonderful story of love and the bond of a mother and child that can never be broken. "Tesoro" is a great success for Veronica and her family.e

I just finished reading this book and am actually planning to re-read it in case I missed anything the first time! The author's writing makes you feel like you are with her through each exquisitely detailed part of her story. The book has given me a lot to think about in terms of my relationship with my own mother. I would highly recommend it.
