Heaven and earth

Giordano, Paolo

Every summer Teresa follows her father to his childhood home in Puglia, Italy. There Teresa spends long afternoons enveloped in a sun-struck stupor. Everything changes the summer she meets the three boys who live on the farm next door: Nicola, Tommaso and Bern--the man Teresa will love for the rest of her life. The three boys share a complex, intimate bond, a twisted kind of love that protects a dark secret. And when Bern--the enigmatic center of the group--commits a brutal act of revenge, not even a final pilgrimage to the edge of the world will be enough to bring back those perfect, golden hours in the shadow of the olive trees.
