There’s a story behind every couple – it needn’t necessarily be their own! With great skill and vivid imagination, Peter Henisch unfolds two intertwined love stories. How do you make love eternal? By giving it a story that never ends…
Italy 1944: Just before the end of the war, an American airman drops from the sky. He lands in the middle of a picturesque Tuscan Renaissance garden in San Vito, right under the window of an English governess, who shelters him from the German occupying forces…
So begins the tale of Mortimer and Miss Molly – a love story recounted one fine evening thirty years later by an elderly American to Julia and Marco, chance visitors to San Vito. But the next morning the American has vanished, leaving the couple wondering how everything panned out for Mortimer and Miss Molly. So the two of them put their imaginations to work in order to continue the rest of the story for themselves.
An ingenious novel about the magic of story-telling.
