Most of us dream of that life-changing moment: news of a lottery win, a surprise inheritance, becoming famous. Pasquale yearns to reach the city, to leave behind his village and humble origins. A young man, whose thoughts and desires lie beyond his time and place in the world. Someone set apart from the start. A hopeless case, as far as his people are concerned.

And then, suddenly, he acts upon a stroke of good fortune: the opportunity for a new name, a new identity. The life he has always craved. No longer trapped in his own skin and narrow horizons, his journey will take him through diverse landscapes, mental, physical, and emotional, as he clings onto the childhood image of owning a grand villa overlooking the sea.

Life is never simple though and escaping one’s roots is next to impossible, even for the narcissistic and single-minded Pasquale. How will he face life’s big questions: love, death, the significance of parenthood, friendship? Just how secure his place, in the hazy underworld of Fascist Italy?

Susan Delle Cave lives in South West London with her husband and has five daughters, all of whom live close by. She speaks three languages and has taught various subjects in a range of schools.

Her many interests include the opera and theatre, genealogy, Sudoku for relaxation and spending time with a growing number of grandchildren.

She would have liked to become an archaeologist.
