    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.

    Ella says: "My mind wandered"
    "Definitely worth your credit!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Beautiful Ruins again? Why?

    Yes, the story is one of sadness and hope, reminding us not to waste even one moment of our life


    Which character – as performed by Edoardo Ballerini – was your favorite?

    Probably Pasquale as he had the most integrity and courage of all the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, although I found the beginning a little difficult to get through. However, the narrative is exceptional and quickly captures your imagination.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely worth the listen!
