ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Chiara era in auto, bloccata dalla piena. Giulia era nel negozio dei suoi genitori, ne sono usciti vivi per miracolo. Anna era a casa, ma suo marito era fuori con i soccorritori, purtroppo. Angela non era in città e non sapeva che anche a lei quel devastante diluvio avrebbe portato via qualcosa. Dal terribile 4 novembre in cui ogni argine ha ceduto e Genova è stata travolta dall’acqua è passato un anno. La sera in cui Chiara si scontra con Anna al ristorante, e Anna deve correre via perché Giulia sta per partorire, ognuna delle protagoniste si trova davanti alle conseguenze delle proprie scelte di quei mesi, e dei propri incontri. C’è Andrea che ha perso un amico, Enea che ha rinunciato a un amore, Marco che ha consumato un addio e Carlo che ha trovato… Giulia. E il cerchio si chiude. Otto vite si rincorrono, si mescolano, si scambiano come piccoli vortici, sul filo dell’acqua. Il nuovo libro di Sara Rattaro, in un originale e avvincente intreccio di trame e sentimenti, rende omaggio a una città, Genova, e a una grande dote umana, la resilienza. Un romanzo luminoso e profondo che ha la qualità del mare e della pioggia: porta in sé il senso della vita, della morte e della rinascita.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Chiara was in the car, blocked by the flood. Giulia was in her parents' shop, they got out alive by a miracle. Anna was home, but her husband was out with rescuers, unfortunately. Angela was not in town and did not know that this devastating flood would take something away from her too. A year has passed since the terrible 4 November in which every embankment gave way and Genoa was overwhelmed by water. The evening when Chiara clashes with Anna at the restaurant, and Anna has to run away because Giulia is about to give birth, each of the protagonists is faced with the consequences of their choices of those months, and of their own encounters. There is Andrea who has lost a friend, Aeneas who has given up on a love, Marco who has consumed a farewell and Carlo who has found... Giulia. And the circle closes. Eight lives chase each other, mix, exchange like small eddies, on the edge of the water. The new book by Sara Rattaro, in an original and compelling interweaving of plots and feelings, pays homage to a city, Genoa, and to a great human gift, resilience. A bright and profound novel that has the quality of the sea and rain: it carries within itself the meaning of life, death and rebirth.
