I thought this would be another one of those travel books about Europe. Like A Year in Provence. Not so much. This is set in northern Italy in rugged high mountains and details the live of some of its elderly residents. Life was tough with moments of hope and love. I enjoyed the retelling of a simplier life but it struck me as sad, the poverty and the diconnection from society.
