"How is this possible? Suddenly the world looks more as it should: full of promise and merriment and baby blue skies; the prodigal sun has found its way back home eager to settle down and work wonders, changing the colour of my sad thoughts, and all because my eyes have met his for the first time."
A story of love and lust with philosophical overtones, Via Roma
oscillates between joy and tragedy. Drawn to and intrigued by two men of Italian descent, both equally smart, loyal and attractive, Sophie Wolfe, a native-born Montrealer, chooses one over the other, setting into motion a series of events that culminates in the death of her husband. Part murder mystery, part road trip, this novel asks the question: “Why do people die?” Sophie journeys into the heart of the Italian mainland and discovers this country's wondrous abilities to restore health and happiness to those who grieve. Intensely erotic, outspoken, earthy without being clinically pornographic or gushy, Via Roma
is a metaphysical exploration of love, suspense, suffering and redemption.
