In 2017, Rachael's granddaughter, Sophie, desperately attempts to fall pregnant but repeatedly fails despite several attempts at IVF. This takes its toll on her marriage. As an anthropologist following in her grandfather’s footsteps, she decides to conduct research for her PhD on Byssus, a cloth woven from the beards of clams. This takes her, and her family to the island of Sant’Antioco.
This will appeal to romantics at heart.
This is a wonderful story and well-written.
I do not like books that go back and forth, back and forth in time. I guess I’m just weird that way. About 25% in to the book, I made a list of the chapters, wrote down the year involved and finished the book in chronological order. For me, it was much better. I understand the use of flashbacks to set the stage for a book but I really dislike this current trend in books. Oh well, I found my own work-around. Still a great book.
The portion in Italy was my favorite. It's a great place! My only complaint is that there are many typos and I'm not super detailed oriented so I'm sure there where more that I didn't catch.
I would still recommen the book. It is certainly an engrossing story.

Written from two different points of view and on two different timelines , Sophie and her family in 2016 and Rachael's in 1956 we journey with them through heartbreak and loss, across foreign lands during times of war and in peace time and celebrate with them in times o happiness, joy and love.
Beautifully written, characters I absolutely loved , descriptive prose that took you right to the heart of the action and combining historical fact and fiction this was one fabulous read.
I can't wait to find what Debbie has in store for us next- a novel I highly recommend .
Definitely 5 star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me !!!!
