Welcome to my website! It’s been quite a while since I’ve given it a makeover. I want to reintroduce myself as novelist, poet, book reviewer and now novice painter at this time of shelter in place. I’m launching a new blog, The Reader’s Cafe for book talk. I also thought it might be a good time to relaunch my latest novel, What Love Becomes. Before our change of life, I was busy doing book clubs but now that we’ve all become so proficient on Zoom, maybe we can continue to discuss this book in this new way.
Here is a bit what the Kirkus Reviews had to say about it:
In this literary novel , two intertwined marriages on the rocks are are brought to a crisis point. As in Standing on the Corner of Lost and Found (2011), Tramontano’s expressive prose intimately follows the thoughts of her characters… The four main characters are well drawn and compelling. The author plays with the expectations people have going into marriages and how often they are disappointed— but also how the potential for change is often waiting somewhere on the next block.
What Love Becomes is a work of literary fiction that traces the intimate landscape of two contemporary marriages from their idealistic, yet misguided beginnings. Each couple mistakenly believe their happily ever after will come without really knowing who’ve they’ve married.
Lisa goes to college in high spirits. Determined to cast off her family’s persistent warnings that life is a tragedy waiting to happen, she is devastated when it does.
