A great love storyAuthor: Susanna Tamaro
They say opposites attract, but what happens when time is the enemy?
On a secluded island, amid the stunning beauty of the Mediterranean, a man in love finds himself alone, in the house he once shared with his beloved wife of many years. He can’t help but remember their first meeting, on the ferry from Venice to Piraeus, in Greece. He was the ship’s captain, she a transgressive young woman on vacation. A tiny moment that changed the course of their lives forever. They did not fall in love immediately, but neither could they forget each other. What followed were years of clandestine nights together, a revelatory separation, passion, and unexpected happiness.
As he recalls the happiest years of his life, he tends to her garden and cares for her bees. The power and fury of nature, like the love they shared, help him heal. And he promises his wife that he will find their daughter Amy, because it is never too late to love.
A simple, yet explosive story that poses fundamental questions about the bonds people forge, our ability to change, and destiny. Most of all, it is a story about the heart, which stays silent when we forget how to listen to it.
