The new novel from prizewinning author, Paolo Cognetti - a love story set in a tiny village high in the Italian Alps. The new novel from prizewinning author, Paolo Cognetti is a love story set in a tiny village high in the Italian Alps. Its protagonists, Fausto and Silvia, meet in winter, their relationship becoming a refuge in all senses, and the seasons, as well as the mountains, an integral part of their story together.
