If You Returned to Me TonightAuthor: Carmen Pellegrino
Giosué Pindari doesn’t easily open up. He is a stoic man, fiercely connected to his land, his family, and his political ideas. But as his wife’s health rapidly degenerates, Giosué turns not to God, but to Lulù, their estranged daughter. Letters in a bottle entrusted to the river’s current, because the river, with its sudden floods, somehow always reaches its destination.
In the faraway city where Lulù lives, in some inexplicable way, the current delivers the answers she seeks. Andreone, a man who lives in a river house and knows what it means to love and lose, will ulti- mately lead her to a form of reconciliation, not just with her father but with the woman who never loved her: her mother.
This poetic and lyrical novel tells the story of a father/daughter rela- tionship, and how an almost abysmal distance between two people can be bridged in the presence of love.
