Where She Has Gone
Set in Toronto and Italy, this powerful sequel to "In a Glass House" explores the sometimes forbidden aspect of desire and one's longing for what is unrecoverable. Victor Innocente remeets his half-sister in Toronto, shortly after his father's death. Uneasy with their new proximity in each other's lives, they are at first restrained. But gradually what is unspoken between them comes closer to the surface, setting in motion a course of events that will take Victor back to Valle del Sole in Italy, the place of his birth. It is there, where the story had its strange beginning twenty years earlier, that he confronts his past, its secrets and its revelations. Poignant, gripping, and written in luminous, highly charged prose, "Where She Has Gone "is an unforgettable novel - for its vivid portrayal of character and place, and for its extraordinarily moving encounter with the past.
