The House at the Edge of Night - Catherine Banner

A sweet little book, that takes you to a small little island in Italy where we get to meet four generations of the same family and their loves and losses.  It all starts with  Amedeo Esposito who comes to the island to work as the local doctor, and falls in love and stays.

It is a gentle novel, not much happens as we follow the family through the 20th century and I felt like I should be lying on a deckchair by the pool wearing a big floppy hat instead of reading it though a chilly winter week. 4/5

As I grow older, those are the stories I like more and more.
