Soon after her mother's death, a woman returns to the village where she grew up to reflect on her childhood years. Atmospheric and dreamlike, this novel by one of the classic writers in 20th century Italian literature is a Proustian journey of self-discovery and a poignant evocation of Italy at the beginning of the century.
