Summary

The story is narrated by all the family’s members, through short chapters that alternate. The novel begins when Andrea, Alice’s husband, leaves. The reader does not know the reason why he is leaving. Then the story goes back in the past and it is narrated not following a chronological order, but jumping from present to past. Sandra and Alberto have been married for years. They have three children, Alice, the eldest, Matteo, a deaf child, and Marta, the youngest. When Alice is still a child, one day, she catches her father hugging another woman, Camilla, his lover. Alice knows he is about to abandon them, but eventually Alberto decides to save his family and to remain with them. Despite his decision, Alice never really overcomes the pain and the grief she felt that day.
