Running for Yellow

RFY-FINAL-COVER-(1)Running for Yellow is a heartfelt story recounting one woman’s journey of self-discovery, in which life’s demands and diversions inevitably return her to the enduring foundations of family and faith. Christina Varrasso has created a novel that balances a poignant narrative with a light-hearted spirit, while introducing a memorable cast of characters that is lovingly detailed and remarkably true-to-life.

Chiara is a hopeless romantic, and as her life unfolds from early adolescence to adulthood, she breaks a promise made to her Italian immigrant father that she would first complete her education before pursuing marriage. Chiara finds her life in complete upheaval after Papá suffers a heart attack and a series of anonymous phone calls force her to question the fidelity of her now-husband, Adrian. Blending humor, drama, and a measured dose of suspense, Running for Yellow is a rewarding and endearing novel about coming of age and the restoring nature of family, love, and faith.

The story is filled with likable, believable characters, and Varrasso deftly balances their flaws with redemptive qualities“  Kirkus Reviews
