9780297772002: The Happy Summer Days: A Sicilian Childhood

The Happy Summer Days describes the childhood of Fulco Santostefano della Cerda in Sicily at the beginning of the 19th century, and paints enchanting vignettes of a bygone era—an era of luxurious places, gardens, and parks where the sun always seems to shine. Through the eyes of young Fulco we see the many fascinating characters of his world, including his aloof grandmother, tender mother, adored sister, dashing father, eccentric neighbors, and more. The book is full of good stories and the enchantments of happy childhood, which dissolved forever with the coming of war.
