Fiction Women's Fiction
A riveting coming-of-age story, told with the breathless
precision of a Hitchcock noir by a masterful new voice in
Ponte, a small community in Northern Italy: peaceful
woods, discarded rubbish, a closed-down factory. An
unbearably hot summer, like so many others--wilted flowers
and trips to the waterfalls.
Elia Furenti is sixteen, living in a secluded house with
his parents, a life so unremarkable that even its moderate
unhappiness has been accepted as normal. Then a new friend
arrives in Ponte, firmly propelling Elia to the edge of
adulthood, and everything starts to unravel.
Elia's father, Ettore, is let go from his job, and he
begins to lose himself in the darkest corners of his mind.
A young boy is murdered, shaking the small community to
its core. And a girl climbs into a van and vanishes in the
deep, dark woods . . .
