At the beginning of the 1970s, Teresa Licciardi, a young widow, shutters her ancestral house and leaves her small town in Sicily, with her sons, for a new life in America. Her departure is the culmination of this beautiful novel, in which the story of a family across generations and continents becomes a hymn to the memory of lost time, people and places, and a celebration of the courage, dignity and love of the author's family and ancestors. Images of daily life, popular beliefs and superstitions, historical and magical events overlay cinematic scenes spanning the frozen Russian steppes in World War II and the boundless prairies of Australia, the gentle Sicilian hillsides and the tunnels and skyscrapers of Manhattan. This is a stirring epic of the immigrant adventure.
