This didn't quite make it to the pile of books as I snavelled it up. Could be an interesting read.

Three years after picking this up, I finally took it off my shelf for a themed release in Queenstown. Decided I had to read a bit first and got hooked on the story. The story of an American student who was killed in the Bologna Train Station bombing and the effect it had on her family. A family who went from being close broke apart in the tragedy. The story is mainly told from the perspective of the father, Woody, who is a classics professor in a small university. His wife deals with her daughter's death by having her marriage dissolved and entering a convent, his two other daughters struggle on to come to terms with Cookies death, and Woody is so absorbed by her death that he becomes a witness in the case and ends up in Bologna where his life eventually starts anew.
Very well written.

I picked this book up from the small Library at Thornbury Bowls Club, intrigued by the concept of both the book and the Travelling Book project. I found myself looking forward to reading it each day on my own travel, back and forward to work on the tram. The characters and the way it was written were warm, funny and an insightful. As a death in a family can so often bring out the best and the worst in those it touches, this story gave us an intimate view of how each of the characters dealt with their own grief and ultimately come to terms with it. Highly recommended.
