Teach me the tempest

Author: Emanuela Canepa

How can a mother not worry when her pregnant teenage daughter is about to repeat her own mistakes?
Emma is devastated when her 18 year-old pregnant daughter Mathilde takes refuge with the one person Emma swore she would never see again: Irene who, to make matters worse, is a nun. When Emma most needed a friend, exactly eighteen years ago, Irene disappeared into thin air and she hasn’t heard from her since. As Emma now stands on the threshold of the Coventry where her old friend lives, she prepares for a showdown that is long overdue. But at the sound of Irene’s voice, her heart breaks and it becomes crystal clear to her that in order to help her daughter, Emma must first make peace with her past. Three deeply connected women who are running away from each other and battling with the bonds of love.
