Read full description of the books This Most Amazing:Dahlia couldn’t have fallen in love at a more inconvenient time.
Not only is her waking life turbulent, but her past love just won’t let go, haunting her dreams and filling her heart with unquenchable yearning. The only problem is, this dream lover isn’t just some guy down the block. He’s an Italian soldier who died more than 200 years before.
Can Dahlia balance dreams and reality, or will the two worlds she lives in eventually collide?
This work of literary fiction intertwines a contemporary romance with the concept of time travel. Bon voyage! Readers are off to 18th-century Italy on a quest for love and enlightenment.
Melissa Schoeffel, author of Maternal Conditions:
“Reminiscent of Tracy Chevalier’s The Virgin Blue [...] Benjamin’s prose is evocative, her characters finely drawn, and the worlds she creates for us give us new ways to think about our own.”
Angela Sorby, author of The Sleeve Waves:
“Readers will be absorbed in the story, but they will also be intrigued by its central question: how does the past endure, not just in history but in our own bodies?”
Who I am
I am a freelance writer and teacher. Over 30 of my poems have appeared in journals, including DIAGRAM, Fulcrum, Chelsea and the Crab Orchard Review. I live in Milwaukee, USA with my 3 daughters. As an Italian-American whose family comes from Villetta Barrea, Italy, the main setting of the novel, my inspiration stems from a family story: my paternal great-great grandfather fought with Napoleon’s army. After a time, he simply walked home and fell in love with his future wife, who brought him food in the village jail every day. This Most Amazing is my first novel.
For years, poetry was the focus of my writing, and I dabbled in fiction, creating a few unfinished or unpolished novel manuscripts that had no action. In 2009 I finally figured out how to tell Vincenzo’s story, which meant wedding the storyline with the modern character of Dahlia. With some years of freelance writing under my belt and after reading more about the craft of fiction writing, I learned to animate my characters. I could make a character do something as in example A) “I’d love to take you out on a date,” he said, gazing into her eyes. Or I could change the character with something like example B) “I’d love to take you out on a date,” he said while picking his ear with a car key. Ta-da: two completely different characters are born with the change of one descriptor! With this knowledge, I fell in love with fiction writing, and now, I’m addicted.
