December Book: Va Dove ti Porta il Cuore 

Originally Published: 1994

Author: Susanna Tamaro

Adaptations: Follow Your Heart (1996)

Genres: Fiction, Epistolary Novel

Va Dove ti Porta il Cuore is a bittersweet, heartwarming novel spanning generations and teaching the universal truths about life, love, and what lies within each of us. It begins in late autumn 1992 as an elderly Italian woman, prompted by the knowledge of her encroaching death, sits down to write a letter to her granddaughter now grown and living in far-off America. Through these moving reflections, we see one life laid bare--joys, sorrows, regrets, and all. And through the eyes of a woman nearing the end of her days, we come to understand what life experience has taught her: that no matter what the stakes, we must look within ourselves and gather the courage to follow our hearts.
