Otilia Greco reveals new world and old secrets in new book

‘Angelica’s Discoveries’ based on author’s journey of love, mystery and perseverance

ZURICH – Determined to overcome her fears, preconceived ideas and reservations, one woman set out to discover her true destiny in America.

Otilia Greco shares her personal journey and experiences with immigration through her new book, “Angelica’s Discoveries: Romance and Journey to the New World” (published by iUniverse). Based on events from her own life, Greco expresses her desire to explore the world outside her home in the Swiss Alps. Like the main character, Greco traveled the world seeking to enrich her life by understanding other cultures.

“Angelica portrays the optimist in all of us, she may not know what the future holds, but she trusts her intuition that everything will work out. She grows from her experiences while adapting to changes during her journey across the globe,” says Greco. “Much of what Angelica goes through is based from events in my life, to never give up and pursue a dream, and the challenges I faced with moving to America.”

Relying on each other for support, Greco and her husband traveled to the United States in hopes of pursuing their dreams, despite disapproval from their families. After a voyage lasting many days on her crossing of the Atlantic Ocean and conquering her fears of open water, she is determined to search for her “lost” relatives scattered across the United States.

Referencing her real life experiences in “Angelica’s Discoveries”, Greco expresses first hand the hardships of immigrating to a new and very different country. Angelica, much like Greco, encounters new experiences, learns from different cultures, and works to survive and flourish in her new home.

Swiss author Otilia Greco takes Angelica on journey to overcome fear

‘Angelica’s Discoveries’ draws from Greco’s days as tour guide in Greece

ENNETBADEN, Switzerland – Her grandfather’s jewel holds a mysterious secret. Angelica is determined to discover it. The only thing standing in the way? A deep fear of water and thousands of miles of ocean. Angelica must overcome her fear and set sail from the Swiss Alps to Greece in pursuit of a mystery and a new life. Along the way, she’ll discover more than she bargained for as a stranger becomes the love of her life and her travels take her farther than she ever imagined to reconnect with lost family.

A novel about taking chances and discovering that dreams can come true even through life’s little circumstances, “Angelica’s Discoveries: Romance and Journey to the New World” (published by iUniverse) is the second novel by Swiss author Otilia Greco, and was inspired by Greco’s own time in Switzerland and Greece. This world-traveling tale is one centered on overcoming one’s fears, risking everything, embracing love, and finding one’s own strength.

From “Angelica’s Discoveries:”

“Standing at the reeling of the boat ready to depart, Angelica realized more than ever that traveling at sea was not a dream; it was pure reality. The boat would bring her to new shores, to a destination that might change her life….”
