Summary

Summary

Everybody on the wonderful Italian island knows Alberto. The old man has made coffins for the great, the good, the poor and the rich for as long as they can remember. They know too that, ever since his wife died and his children left, he’s withdrawn further and further into himself. Indeed, he’s become positively grumpy.

Unknown to the nosey townsfolk, Alberto’s heart is broken with loneliness and despair. So when a peculiar bird flutters into his garden, he starts to try to tame it. And when, one day, a boy follows the bird into Alberto’s basement, a door in the old man’s heart chinks open. The boy is lonely too – but he’s also scared. On the run from his brutal stepfather, he just wants to feel safe, for once in his life.

Brought together by a magical bird, the boy and the old man slowly learn to trust one another. Through that trust, can they learn the power of friendship and love once again?

A novel to curl up with, the sort that makes the world seem a warmer, better place.
