Mirta Ines Trupp . . . is a second generation Argentine. She was born in Buenos Aires in 1962 and immigrated to the United States that same year. Because of the unique fringe benefits provided by her father’s employer — Pan American Airlines — she returned to her native country frequently, growing up with “un pie acá, y un pie allá” (with one foot here and one foot there).
Mirta’s fascination with Jewish history and genealogy, coupled with an obsession for historical period drama, has inspired her to create unique and enlightening novels. She has been a guest speaker for book clubs, sisterhood events, genealogy societies, and philanthropic organizations. Besides being an avid novel reader, she has a lifelong love for choral music and is a devoted Beatles fan.
Truly good writing comes from a place deep within the author. Great storytelling comes from an equally profound space … one which accesses beliefs and experiences that inform the tale being woven. Mirta Ines Trupp has delivered an Austenesque novel that blends her Judaism with history and with Austen. This book is a prefect example of how an author reached deeply into her soul for that which brings a veritas to every character and act. I assure you that you have never come across anything quite like “The Meyersons of Meryton.”
