Una bellísima novela sobre el eterno problema del amor, con la verdad que ofrece un conocimiento profundo del alma humana.Un viejo campesino calabrés llega a casa de sus hijos en Milán para someterse a una revisión médica. Allí descubre su último afecto, una criatura en la que volcar toda su ternura: su nieto, que se llama Bruno, como a él le llaman sus camaradas partisanos. Y vive también su última pasión: el amor de una mujer que iluminará la etapa final de su vida concediéndole toda su plenitud.

Recomendaría a este libro a cualquier lector que le encanta la literatura clásica española. Me embrujó desde la primera página hasta la última.

The Golden Age of the Spanish Empire would establish five centuries of Western supremacy across the globe and usher in an era of transatlantic exploration that eventually gave rise to the modern world. It was a time of discovery and adventure, of great political and social change - it was a time when Spain learned to rule the world.

Very interesting book but, oh my goodness, how how is it possible that Audible would sanction such a reading? Almost every Spanish name or word was mispronounced. Excruciating. I kept going because I am fascinated by Spain but no, I cannot recommend this narrator.
