Alexandra is 42. Her husband Andrea loves her and she likes her job. In the editorial department of the woman’s mag where she works, no one knows she’s five weeks pregnant. She is thrilled because she had stopped hoping; after all, she’s not a girl anymore. But now her dream of having a family is going to come true. Nine months fly by in bubbly happiness until, suddenly, the dream turns into ashes and suffering. Alexandra is unable to face this new reality of hers. She lives one day after another in a state of total emotional anaesthesia, desperately evoking the memories of her life before and coming up against what is left of it after. Andrea wants to help her accept the situation and, together with her, reconstruct what happened, but Alexandra does not want anything. Until a dramatic New Year’s Eve when the truth comes to light. It is a revelation that leads Alexandra to profound introspection and seeking a reason in the past. She finds intersecting fates and unimaginable karmic encounters. The book is a song to rebirth, a novel about pain, life and a voyage through the souls of people who have never been forgotten. Parlami di lei is a story about all of us.
