Mooi en intens. Het verhaal van drie zusters. Pure poëzie. Schoon geschreven. ( )

Bello, molto intenso.
Incentrato sui rapporti tra sorelle: la sensazione per una che sorelle non ne ha avute è che sia molto penetrante, perfino doloroso per chi ha invece vissuto rapporti analoghi.

Anni Trenta: un uomo, un giovane scienziato ebreo di cui due sorellastre, Isabella e Margot, sono entrambe innamorate. La serenità di un tranquillo rifugio in Svizzera non riesce a cancellare gli orrori della guerra e delle persecuzioni razziali, né a evitare una violenta ribellione contro il ricatto, una scomparsa misteriosa e un epilogo che è un sorprendente antefatto ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803280068, Paperback)

A work of understated elegance and cumulative power, this novel eases readers into a drama unfolding within a Catholic family in Italy on the eve of World War II. As scenes only dimly understood by the child Lorenza are revisited by the woman she becomes, what seemed a family affair—a romance involving Lorenza’s mother, her father’s Jewish friend Arturo, and her aunt Margot in Switzerland—begins to reveal the broader outlines of the drama of history, in particular the tragedy of Italy’s Jews during the Holocaust. Limning the interplay of past and present, of memory and presence, this haunting work by one of Italy’s foremost writers brings to life the subtleties and complexities of history as it is experienced, interpreted, and relived within the most intimate of realms.
