Description

A crossroads between chance and destiny sees the meeting between Leonardo Guerrieri, fifty-year-old widower, a brilliant past and a future adrift, and Martino Rochard, a taciturn boy who faces his instabilities in solitude. Leonardo and Martino have different backgrounds and ages, but the same reserved character. The boy, in temporary foster care, does not ask, does not expect, does not tell: he stays on his own and never disturbs. In middle school, however, Martino, now an adolescent, is diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. To get away from the shifting sands of apathy that is about to suck them both down, Guerrieri decides to leave Milan and move to a large, remote and isolated house, in the middle of the woods and high-altitude meadows, in the Piedmont Alps.

It is in the silence of the mountains, observing the clouds in the sky and taking the animals to pasture, that the boy will find himself and his father will find a new serenity. In touch with simple things and genuine people, thanks to the friendship with the gruff Augusto, an elderly mountain expert of ancient wisdom, father and son find themselves more alive, cultivating their respective passions and inclinations strongly. A positive story is at the center of this novel which is overflowing with authentic humanity and sensitivity and which contains a reflection on the fragile boundary that divides normality from diversity.
