Victor Lodato - Honey


Saturday June 8 at 5:00 PM Victor Lodato gives a presentation on his latest novel, Honey.  This should be a great presentation!  Introducing a character that is so easy to like. Space is limited.  Please email  to register attend this free event.  There will be drawings for prizes and refreshments.

What a great character! We meet Honey in her 80’s, she has moved back to New Jersey after spending decades away from her Mob connected family.  Determined to live a life filled with beauty and art, she succeeded, first in New York City then LA.  But time moves on, with a deathly toll.  Honey has lost her two best friends in close succession.  Depressed and lonely, she returns to her hometown.  If you think life is going to keep Honey down, think again!  This is a rollicking exploration of growing older, keeping your mojo, causing a bit of trouble, and living life big! Such a fun story, showing that 80 might just be the new 18!

Honey’s decision to return to her early stomping grounds and reconnect with her family is born of sadness over the loss of her best friends.  It is also a move that she hasn’t entirely thought out.  Her family isn’t the Brady Bunch, think more along the lines of the Godfather or Good Fellas.  True, her father, mother, and brother are all gone.  But her nephew, Corrado, is still in the family trade and at least one of his sons is following in his footsteps.  The other son is definitely following a different drummer, not daddy’s shoe steps. So, it takes a while to reconnect, as in months.

Meanwhile Honey’s young next-door neighbor, Jocelyn, crashes into her orbit and doesn’t seem like she is going away any time soon.  The two women, one at the beginning of her adventures, the other finding they don’t have to end at 80, are an odd combination in oh so many ways.

There is so much in this lovely story!  Honey finds love again, decides to be an agent of good in her grandnephew Michael’s life despite the rocky start of their reunion, realizes art remains important.  Ultimately Honey overcomes the sadness that proved her move to New Jersey and is determined to live her best life NOW! Reading about her tumultuous journey is a joy.
