While trying to understand why her marriage is failing, Berta instead learns she is the sole surviving heir to a centuries-old Italian dynasty. Accompanying her to claim her rightful heritage, Berta’s husband, Luka, learns he, too, is from an ancient famiglia, one from whom he has inherited a feudal grudge against hers, leading to their wedlock’s inevitable ending, and also to his death. Still, Berta explores her lineage, deep into a genealogical history wherein her maternal blood has long described a kind of “missing link” to the village upon which her ancestors amassed its fortunes. ~ Reviewed by Ray Marsocci
