Equal parts tender and hilarious, Tarquini’s rollicking prose wends the reader through a hybrid tale of karma, past lives, and the capacity to forgive and forget.Camille Griep

Amor Vincit Omnia
EUGENIA PANISPORCHI LIVES WITH HER MOTHER, TEACHES CHAUCER, AND REMEMBERS ALL HER PAST LIVES.
SHE IS DESPERATE TO CHANGE HER FUTURE.
Born this time around into a South Philadelphia Italian-American family so traditional, she and her siblings are expected to marry in birth order, Eugenia lives a simple life―no love connection, no controversy, no complications. Her hope is that the Blessed Virgin Mary (who oversees her soul’s progress) will grant her heart’s desire, the option to choose the circumstances of her next life. But when a student reveals he shares her ability, Eugenia suddenly finds herself setting up a Facebook page and sponsoring a support group for others like her, an oddball odyssey, during which she discovers she must confront her current shortcomings before she can break the cycle and finally live the life of her dreams.
A layered contemporary fable, Hindsight reminds us to live this life like it’s the only one we’ll have.
