A Bridge Between ~ Northern Italy Come Hell or High Water by Velia Pola


in the course of the night time in a darkened airport, a tiny voice inside her head taunted her. “do you know where your mom is?” The voice began to shriek. “i am the caregiver.”

Traipsing off to talk over with her 91-yr antique father’s ancestral village in northern Italy, the author, more Peter Pan than Mary Poppins, is an not going caregiver and in over her head escorting her aged oldsters. In an endearing memoir, alternately mild hearted and soulfully tearful, the family travels far past the picturesque againdrop of northern Italy, breaking ground on what has change into a common adventure for hundreds of thousands of grownup kids—taking care of the fogeys who raised them. They barely keep their heads above water in Venice, do battle with Comacchian eel at the Adriatic coast and play a harried recreation of disguise and seek in Ravenna. They nourish their bodies and souls in Emilia-Romagna, perfect a belligerent agent in Bellagio and reflect on love and loss in wintercff0478#three9;s shadow on Lake Como. From Venice to Savona, vividentification landscapes and historic venues blend with classes from the author’s formative years in a crash course on growing older with grace and resolution.

As a technology of baby boomers confronts the long-term care in their oldsters, A BRIDGE between transcends the position of travelogue to change into a socially related love story of devotion, attractiveness, and the evolution of familial relationships.
