    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Michele says: "The Perfect Summer Read"
    "great listen!"

    You learn the stories of each character and then they are so interwoven, so as to tie it all together.

    I loved how the characters grew and changed as they became self aware.


    What does Edoardo Ballerini bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voices!
