Reviews

In After Isabella, Fiore has created a compelling and provocative read, nicely paced and thoroughly absorbing. At times, both heart-warming and poignant, it's impossible not to feel a sense of loss on turning the final page. Irish Independent

A beautiful, heartfelt novel that swept me up and held me tight until the end. I was lost in this powerful, poignant tale. -- Amanda Prowse
