Rosa, Sola



Rosa, Sola

Rosa Bernardi, an only child living with her Italian immigrant parents in 1960s Chicago, often feels alone, or ‘sola,’ as her parents would say. But after she holds her best friend AnnaMaria’s baby brother for the first time, Rosa is sure that if she prays hard enough, God will send her a brother of her own. When Rosa’s prayers for a sibling are answered, she is overjoyed—until tragedy strikes. Rosa is left feeling more ‘sola’ than ever, and wondering if her broken family will ever be whole again.
