Publisher's Summary

Follow Your Heart is a bittersweet tale that explores the reflections and revelations of aging. This lyrical novel has earned author Susanna Tamaro prestigious awards as it quickly became an international success, touching the hearts of readers worldwide. Over 1.8 million copies have been sold in Italy alone.

With winter and death approaching, Olga, an elderly Italian woman, writes a long letter to her granddaughter in America. In it, she shares her loves, her lifelong secrets, and the history of her tragic relationship with her daughter (the granddaughter’s mother). After a lifetime lived in a patriarchal society, Olga also contemplates the frailty of her family ties. Stressing the need to follow her heart, the pensive grandmother speaks to her granddaughter across the miles and years that separate them. The resulting pages convey her inner journey and hard-won knowledge to the young woman with eloquent clarity.

    Story
    "best book I've "heard" in a while"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Follow Your Heart to be better than the print version?

    The narrator is superb, has pauses and inflections that bring the story to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Grandmother, transparency - really love the metaphors she uses.


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

    The narrator is superb, has pauses and inflections that bring the story to life.
