BETWEEN TWO LIFETIMES is an historical romantic story that takes place between 1937 and 1939 in an Italian immigrant community in central California. Italian immigrants, Giuseppe and Francesca Corgi face the challenges of raising their first-generation American children. Three sisters, coming of age as the Depression eases, and before the advent of World War II, seek love and romance in a confusing, ambiguous time. Tessa, Josie and Gina each have their own ideas of dating, love, sex and courtship but must balance the "new, modern" American way with the expectations of their Catholic, immigrant parents. Each struggles to find love but not without crashing into boundaries of culture and religion.
