It begins in late autumn 1992 as an elderly Italian woman, prompted by the knowledge of her encroaching death, sits down to write a letter to her granddaughter now grown and living in far-off America. Through these moving reflections, we see one life laid bare--joys, sorrows, regrets, and all. And through the eyes of a woman nearing the end of her days, we come to understand what life experience has taught her: that no matter what the stakes, we must look within ourselves and gather the courage to follow our hearts.

This short novel was on the best seller list in Italy and England, but was somehow overlooked in Canada. It is a tenderly written memoir by a grandmother in which she explains to her granddaughter the circumstances of her life and her mother's life in a manner that conveys a great understanding of youth. Tamaro's simple style makes this memorable book very readable and appealing on many different levels.

An excellent read; I didn't want to put the book down. Eloquently written... definitely a bittersweet and heartwarming novel. The description of the book is exactly how it's described in the item detail. I definitely would recommend this book. Enjoy.
