There is no right or wrong time for loving, forgiving, changing, living. There is the time chosen by each of us.

English sample available – Bestseller List

Alessandra has the perfect life: a teaching job, a supportive family and a man at her side with whom she can plan the future. At least until the day when an unexpected gust of wind swells a curtain on a window and shifts all the objects in a room. A gust that sweeps away her love and a large proportion of her certainties. However, it is precisely in this new life where nothing adds up that a new opportunity presents itself. Before embarking on a long trip, Alessandra’s sister entrusts her with her children. Consequently, her everyday life comes alive with requests for love, shared dinners and improbable conversations, as well as swimming lessons watched proudly from the terraces. And it’s on these terraces that she meets Lorenzo, a kind, optimistic man, only recently divorced and with a tantrum-throwing teenage daughter. They have much to bring them together and much to keep them apart: they can only devote a little time to love. The timing seems wrong and the meeting a gamble. As we know, it takes courage to see the beauty in what looks imperfect but is often just different and unfamiliar. That’s what makes it particularly special.
