Safe in Your Head
January 20, 2023
An epic story about three generations of Italian women haunted by the shadows of World War II. With love, loyalty, and with faith in magic, a widow and her daughter attempt to survive poverty and the political chaos that seizes their country in spasms through the 1970s, until the violence of the Years of Lead forces them to move across the Atlantic. In America, they attempt to rebuild their lives, but the widow’s granddaughter discovers that safety is an illusion, and no one can outrun the long reach of war. Includes traditional recipes and magic spells.
