Synopsis: The sudden death of her husband is a devastating blow for Giuliana, leaving her all alone in the world with two daughters. Making it through from one day to next tests both her strength and imagination, all while she goes from incredulity to annoyance, and from there to the idealization of her relationship with William (her husband).
She then discovers, besides unrepeatable moments that her memory conjures time and again, William’s loveliest legacy: an intense network of relationships that will herald a new way of being in the world and will teach her, thanks to the support of others, that learning to accept loss is learning to live.
Through conversations, memories, off-the-cuff remarks in social media, everyday scenes, with vitality and without drama, and a healing sense of humor, Carmen Amoraga builds an intimate and universal novel about love and loss, the value of what has been lived and is still to be lived.
