A Ray of Light
A young man yearns for a family of his own while his aging mother is consumed by dementia.
Every morning, Filomena takes the regional train to the middle of nowhere. Between one stop and another, she relives a single memory: a motorcycle trip with her husband. She has been this way for as long as Carlo can remember. His love for his mother is a full-time job… until he meets Cara. She and her baby share a unique language made up of stories, of laughter and joy. Watching them awakens in long-forgotten memories, a secret buried in his parents’ past. A novel about taking care of those you love, for better or for worse.
