It is the last two years of war.MoreOutside a certain village in the hills and countryside of Umbria there is a house in which live Alcina and Aliseo, sister and brother.

She is older, wiser, apparently stronger- he is younger, his head in the clouds. It is the last two years of war. The Germans are on the run, the local fascists engaged in a final desperate spree of cruelty and arrogance. Inside Alcinas heart there is fear- fear of loneliness and the terrible fear of death. She knows too much: her mother died giving birth to Aliseo, and her father also died young. Alcina and Aliseo join the partisans in the mountains, and Alcina gradually learns to overcome her fears.

She will learn that there is space enough in her heart for all those things she previously denied, amongst them perhaps even love. This is a surprising, beautiful novel about feelings, a subtle story, one difficult to forget. Alcina holds everything together, past and present, daily life and memory.
