This book reminds me of some of the old New England Azorean Portugese descendants I knew when I was young. The stories they would tell! So dramatic. And buried in that tale would be a nugget of truth. However, it would take forever to get there....
This is the third in this series, and the author may assume you have read the other two( I have not although I have read other books by Maria Grazia Swan). We watch a young woman who has no family left, has broken an engagement, and given up her condo so needs to return to the US and regroup to see where her life goes now. The family now has a different view, and with all of this drama, a trip back to her childhood home may allow for new understandings.
There is a wonderful description of Mina's stroll through her town, and how abruptly things change from cobblestone to asphalt, from her old town to the part of town aimed at young GIs and the things they buy/need.
If you have lived small town life, you understand the situation. Even the author says this when she has the old woman who reconnects with Mina tell her there is no need for a local newspaper when everyone is connected in some way and news, gossip and rumors abound. This woman has known Mina's family for at least three generations. She knows the stories both real and fabricated, and Mina uses her as a sounding board as well as a touchstone as the history Emilia is studying dovetails into a situation Mina runs into.
Will she find what she is looking for? Will you find what you are looking for? Read Italian Summer and see. I'm looking forward to finding the other two
When Mina learns the fate of Vittorio, a vibrant and caring young man from her adolescence, she shivers in apprehension. His fiery-tempered sister Lola informs Mina he fell from a ladder while helping the nuns. Coincidentally, he died around the same time as a beloved member of Mina's family.
During her Italian summer, Mina mourns her dead boyfriend Diego. As Mina digs around in old secrets, she unearths shocking secrets stretching from the past to the present.
Maria Grazia Swan's Italian Summer offers romance, suspense, and excitement. The Italian setting and characters offer a cross-cultural view and adventure for the armchair traveler.
Don't miss out on this one, you will regret it. Waiting desperately for the next one.
