Fly Francesca Fly is a work of fiction in the women’s fiction, interpersonal drama, and cultural issues sub-genres, and was penned by author Venera Concetta. The plot is focused on the struggles of one woman against the bonds which tradition and family place upon her and presents a realistic and emotional account of an ongoing battle with these issues. Throughout the story, she deals with the loss of a loved one, her family’s Sicilian beliefs and ways of doing things, PTSD, mental health issues, and the self-destructive behaviors which these problems present her with. What results is a powerful psychological account of the search for freedom and individuality.
Author Venera Concetta has crafted a bright, intelligently penned, and deeply serious work of fiction which informs just as much as it touches one’s heart whilst it unravels the storyline. One of the things which I most admired about the work was its commitment to authenticity, particularly in the representation of the causes, experiences, and behaviors present when one is struggling with mental health issues. I really enjoyed the narrative style of the author, which allows for an intimate portrayal that seeks to juxtapose the outside influences with their internal effects, and I really admired the attention to detail with the elements of Sicilian culture that affect the behavior of the rest of the family. Overall, I would certainly recommend Fly Francesca Fly to readers looking for a high-quality literary work that discusses serious issues in a masterful and immersive fashion.
