Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A crumbling farmhouse in Puglia, Casa Rossa was bought by Alina Strada’s grandfather at a time when no one else wanted it. Now busy preparing it for sale, Alina endeavors to recover the memories it still harbors—in particular of three women whose passions indelibly shaped her family’s dark past. There’s grandmother Renee, whose love of novelty won over everything else. Alina’s mother, Alba, whose marriage to a screenwriter inspired both great art and unbearable sadness. Finally Isabella, Alina’s sister, whose fervent politics drove her to ever-escalating betrayals. Moving from Jazz Age Paris to 1950s Rome to modern-day New York, but returning always to the uncompromising beauty of Italy’s south, Casa Rossa is a spellbinding story of how loves and losses, secrets and lies, resonate across the generations.

Synopsis:

As Alina packs up the family belongings at their home, a magnificent farmhouse in Puglia, in preparation for its sale, she uncovers clues to her family's past, revealing the lives of three extraordinary Strada women--Grandmother Renee, who left her husband to flee to Nazi Germany; her mother Alba; and her sister Isabelle, who joined the Red Brigades in the 1970s. Reader's Guide available. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
