Shelves: romance-erotic-affairs This book is deeply moving because it deals so closely with issues close to the human heart. The prose is simple and uplifting, the story just an excuse to reveal to us universal truths that we all know but refuse to acknowledge. Critical and cynical people might brush this book aside but I feel that one really has to look very deeply into it to really discover its true worth. This must be read with an open mind and I feel that the ending is particularly apt because there is none.
This situation This book is deeply moving because it deals so closely with issues close to the human heart. This situation could be so easily applied to our daily lives and the author is telling us in simple gracious terms that patience and undersanding should be the forefront of our relationship with our family. Despite the somewhat muddled use of the flashback technique and several narratives that are a little to rambling, this is a jewel that teaches love, in a world where there is little to be found.
Her granddaughter is obviously a headstrong young woman who has moved to America leaving her grandmother in Italy heartbroken and alone. The grandmother can feel death coming and wants to leave her granddaughter a letter of history and hope for the future. She pulls no punches. She is not afraid to illuminate her own shortcomings as well as those around her, granddaughter included.
This is the brutally honest letter a grandmother who is nearing death writes to the granddaughter she raised alone.
It is difficult to read that she did not think about her daughter for several years after her death or that she did not love her daughter enough without your heart breaking a little. This is a woman who was not going to spare her granddaughter the truth. I was pulled in right from the beginning. It was real and honest and a great story of three generations of women who all seemed to be fighting the past.
It is definitely a worthwhile read.
