The inhabitants of Sant'Angelo D'Asso, a small Italian village tormented by a series of misfortunes--endless rain, an influenza epidemic, and a series of bizarre deaths--are given new hope and faith by the arrival of two mysterious newcomers, Rosa Spina Innocenti and her son Emanuelle MosŤ, but the arrival of another stranger could destroy everything.

About the Author:

Jeff Shapiro is the author of the acclaimed novel Renato's Luck. Married to an Italian woman, he has lived in the countryside near Siena since 1991. He teaches English at a language university in Siena and creative writing at the Siena School for Liberal Arts.

From Publishers Weekly:

The author of Renato's Luck makes luck a motif again in his second novel set in Tuscany—bad luck, that is. Perpetual rainfall, raging influenza and bizarre accidents beset the village of Sant' Angelo D'Asso at the start of this heartwarming tale by Italian transplant Shapiro. Single mother Petula (daughter of the eponymous protagonist of Renato's Luck) feels as cursed as her fellow villagers. She loves her six-year-old son, Beniamino, but believes she's trapped in her relationship with volatile Daniele, Beniamino's father, who works with her at the train station bar. The town's bad luck lifts with the arrival of two newcomers: lusty Rosa Spina and her solemn, miracle-working adult son, Emanuele Mosè, who holds popular weekly prayer sessions for the eager townsfolk. Then Petula's bad luck lifts, too, with the appearance of Emanuele's ex-convict twin brother, L'Altro, who is as bright and outgoing as his brother is reticent. But is L'Altro all he seems to be? And what about Emanuele? The priest, Don Luigi, and his flock look askance at the cult over which Rosa and her "good" son preside, and Petula harbors some doubts about mysterious L'Altro. Sufficient suspense keeps the reader involved until the surprising resolution, and local color provides sustenance for armchair travelers.
