'You don't read this book, you live it' Erin Kelly

'Holds the reader under a spell from start to finish' O, the Oprah Magazine

'If you're going through Elena Ferrante withdrawals, this is the book for you' Harper's Bazaar

If Stella Fortuna means 'lucky star,' then life must have a funny sense of humour.


Everybody in the Fortuna family knows the story of how the beautiful, fiercely independent Stella, who refused to learn to cook and who swore she would never marry, has escaped death time and time again.

From her childhood in Italy, to her adulthood in America, death has seemed to pursue Stella. She has been burned, eviscerated and bludgeoned; she has choked, nearly fallen out of a window, and on one occasion, her life was only saved by a typo.

However, even the best-known stories still have secrets to reveal . . . and even after a century, Stella's is no exception.

No woman survives seven or eight deaths without a reason. So, how did she? In a tale which spans nine decades, two continents, and one family's darkest, deepest-buried truths, the answer awaits. . .
