The Neapolitan Novels (Book 3)
Friends Elena and Lila have become women. Married at sixteen, Lila left her husband and works as a common laborer. Elena left the neighborhood, earned a degree, and published a successful novel. Afloat on the sea of opportunities that opened in the nineteen-seventies, they are still connected by a strong, unbreakable bond.
