About the book:

Leda is a middle-aged divorced woman devoted to her job of teacher of English and to her two daughters. When they leave home to live with their father inCanada, instead of the expected loneliness and yearn for them, Leda realises that she enjoys liberty and that her life has become easier and more beautiful.

She decides to go for a holiday in a little coastal town on the South of Italy where, after a few calm days, she meets an unusual family that causes discomfort in her and triggers a wave of memories of her youth, difficult and unconventional decisions she had to make as a mother, and consequences those decisions left both to her and her family.

A seemingly trivial occurrence gradually turns to ferocious introspection of her own chaotic past.
