The Capri Girl: The LaFollette Chronicles
by D. Guy
J.P. White's grandfather landed in New York in 1910 and started a family dynasty. Descended from hard-working, successful Italian stock, J.P. is a talented, good-looking young man. Growing up during the 1940's in the small city of LaFollette, nestled deep in the hills of East Tennessee, he had little need to worry. After all, his family, being successful, had money.
J.P. discovered at the age of 16 that he had a real knack for song writing. In fact, he was very good. Writing songs for his agent in Nashville provided J.P. with an income he didn't need, and he had written some very successful songs, including the entire, “Capri Suite,” album which brought world-wide fame and even more riches. But … some dark secret still haunted J.P. … something from a time spent in Italy. Something that happened on the beautiful island of Capri.
J.P. enjoyed popularity with the ladies, especially an old school friend in a troubled marriage named Teresa.
J.P. and Teresa enjoyed, “consoling,” each other to the fullest. But, something was still very wrong. There is a deep sadness, a dark corner in J.P.; something consoling Teresa had helped him forget for a time. Something named Rosina.
But, things are beginning to change. J.P. and Teresa's stolen moments of happiness are coming to an end. Should J.P. go back to Italy … to Capri? Should he shine a light in that dark corner even if doing so might cost him his life this time? As it had almost done once before. Maybe it is time to stop running. Just maybe, what J.P. really needs is waiting for him in Capri.
