GREETINGS FROM STONE HARBOR: GROWING UP IN THE 1950S ON A BARRIER ISLAND

 
Published by Feathered Star Press
 
Greeting from Stone Harbor  is about growing up on a barrier island situated along the southern shores of New Jersey in Cape May County.  The author briefly recounts the island's history as well as her family's history with a special emphasis on the first fifteen years of her own life in Stone Harbor.

The book is an outgrowth of the many articles published in local (Tampa Bay) publications as well as in New Jersey newspapers.

REVIEW by Fortune Bosco, noted Tampa author:

"Greeting from Stone Harbor is a book written by Sandi Scionti, which was recently published. This autobiographical novel describes the youth of the writer in a small town in New Jersey.

The writer talks about family unity, the simplicity of life and the virtues of a good life. There are nostalgic tones that tend to recapture a kind of existence that has left us. The reader is captivated by a style that keeps the mind intrigued. It is difficult to put this book down and Sandi Scionti should be complimented for this wonderful saga of her youth."
