Author George Gauci, will be at the Bookworm bookshop in Republic Street, Victoria, Gozo next Wednesday, the 14th of August, to sign paperback copies of his popular recent release, ‘The Cross.’
The novel takes the reader back to Qormi in 1908, when a widower falls in love with a woman. The reader grows with this family, which includes three children, going through their strong Catholic belief, upbringing, their love, their pain and their happiness, through the years, World War Two and after and gives the reader an insight into island culture before the war.
A journey across the twentieth century, packed with drama, intrigue and historical insight, set on the islands of Gozo and Malta.
‘The Cross’ is pubished in English and the first edition, which was in hardback with a dust cover, sold out in the first month of publication.
“The book has kept many readers awake into the early hours, a real page-turner.” The author said, ‘The Cross’ can be read by all ages and is “a great way for first, second and third generations to get to know where they come from, what their forefathers went through during World War 2 and how, through their teachings and their belief in our Christian religion, it made us who we are today.”
George will be present at the Bookworm bookshop to sign copies of his novel between 9.00am and 11.00am.
