Discovery of an Eagle

By Grace Mattioli

General fiction, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


A 28 year old wakes up when he realizes that death is imminent. After his job lays him off, Cosmo Greco takes his sister, Silvia, up on her offer to drive to Portland. At the beginning of the trip, a Mack truck wipes them off the road, nearly killing them. This near-death experience is a wake-up call for Cosmo, and he begins to question the life he’s been leading. He realizes that he’s not happy with his current life and wants to make a change. A number of encounters along the way reinforce this desire, but he’s afraid to leave the familiarity of his humdrum existence for the unknown. Cosmo’s journey is set against the backdrop of the American road with vivid, soulful descriptions and a cast of colorful characters. This book is the sequel to Olive Branches Don't Grow On Trees and the second book in the Greco Family Trilogy, although it can be read as a stand-alone. Reviewers such as Kirkus Reviews and Midwest Book Review have called this a poignant and well-drawn soaring story that opens readers eyes to new perspectives.
