Description

“Elena Ferrante will blow you away.” Alice Sebold, New York Times bestselling author

An edgy tale of mixed feelings and motherhood by the New York Times bestselling author of My Brilliant Friend

Leda, a middle-aged divorcée, is alone for the first time in years after her two adult daughters leave home to live with their father in Toronto. Enjoying an unexpected sense of liberty, she heads to the Ionian coast for a vacation. But she soon finds herself intrigued by Nina, a young mother on the beach, eventually striking up a conversation with her.

After Nina confides a dark secret, one seemingly trivial occurrence leads to events that could destroy Nina’s family in this “arresting” (Publishers Weekly) novel by the author of the New York Times bestselling Neapolitan Novels, which have sold millions of copies and been adapted into an HBO series.

Praise

“Elena Ferrante will blow you away.” Alice Sebold, New York Times bestselling author

“[A] brutally frank novel of maternal ambivalence…Ferrante’s gift for psychological horror renders [the drama] immediate and visceral.” New Yorker

“Arresting…Ferrante’s prose is stunningly candid, direct, and unforgettable. From simple elements, she builds a powerful tale of hope and regret.” Publishers Weekly
