Bestseller List

Is it too late to take stock of your life when you’re pushing fifty? Is it too late to want a child?

In this new novel by Federica Bosco, an author who has sold over 1 million copies of her books, Giulia, the protagonist, must learn to take risks in order to finally live fully and reach out for what fate has in store for her. It might even be happiness…

Giulia is about to blow out forty-nine candles on her cake when she suddenly feels dissatisfied, as though she hasn’t done anything of consequence in her life. And then there’s that never previously experienced desire that’s calling to her louder and louder: she wants a child – she who has never thought of motherhood. Even though her female friends cannot understand her and her partner doesn’t know how to tell her it’s insane. “It’s too late” are the words Giulia hears echoing in their conversations and now she is no longer able to decide between yielding to the majority view and trying anyway. But what Giulia doesn’t know is that destiny is never written in stone. That she holds many different cards in her hand. They could be those we’ve chosen from her deck, the ones we want with all our hearts. Or they could be others, that are very different from what we’ve always imagined, and that surprise us. Because there isn’t just one road to happiness and the only way to find the right one is taking a risk. Because, maybe, the best day of our lives is yet to come.
