Summary
The brilliant, bookish Elena and the fiery uncontainable Lila have made life's great discoveries, its vagaries and losses have been suffered. Both women once fought to escape the neighborhood in which they grew up-- a prison of conformity, violence, and inviolable taboos. Now, in a Naples that is as seductive as it is perilous-- and in a world undergoing epochal change-- Lila and Elena clash, drift apart, reconcile, and clash again, in the process revealing new facets of their friendship

Summary
The dazzling finale in the saga of two women: the spirited, bookish Elena and the fiery Lila. Their tumultuous friendship, formed when they were children in Naples, has always been at the heart of their lives. Elena, now a published writer, is married with three daughters. She has come back to Naples to be with the man she has always loved. Lila is a successful entrepreneur and a mother, too, but has never managed to escape the stifling neighbourhood where she grew up.
