Here’s the set-up:
Until her dad died, Little considered herself a Californian. Now, thanks to half a letter, a symbol she can’t quite remember, and writer’s block, she finds herself back in Italy, the country of her birth. In a headlong rush to return to her beloved San Francisco, Little will journey throughout Italy, enlisting the help of the aunt who raised her, friends old and new, and the country itself, in her search for the answers she needs.
This is the powerful story of those in search of a balance between wanderlust and the necessity to come home, a reminder that although we may be fragments, we are never a lost cause.
“Flavia Brunetti has woven a lyrical tale of self-discovery and growth, tied together with the strength of familial bonds, which transcend place and time. A lovely read.” – Michelle Fabio, author of the award-winning blog Bleeding Espresso
