Follow Your Heart by Susanna Tamaro

Book Description

Driven by the fear of encroaching death, an elderly woman describes to a write a long letter to her granddaughter, in the shape of a diary. Part love letter and part confession, it is most importantly a bequest from an old woman at last brave enough to acknowledge that she has too long repressed her feelings and submitted to convention. Reliving everything that has happened to her she seeks to remind her granddaughter that the one worthwhile journey in life to the centre of oneself, in search of that original voice we all guard deep inside.

Listen to My Voice by Susanna Tamaro Listen to My Voice, Paperback (October 2008)

Marta is raised by her grandmother in her house in Trieste, a haven of stories, books and enchantment. She knows that her mother died when she was young, and she believes that her father is a Turkish prince. But, as she grows older and this tale disintegrates, Marta feels anger towards her grandmother for withholding information about her parents.

Answer Me by Susanna Tamaro Answer Me, Paperback (February 2003)

'I kill you in order that I may live. I kill you in order that I may possess. I kill you in order that I may be free of you.' Thus the protagonist Rosa muses on a bitter winter night, alone and confused, as she faces the most difficult decision of her young life. Are we, the characters ask, damned or are we capable of salvation?

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » This wan roman, whose hortatory pleading never rises beyond the level of "Know Thyself," is an obvious entry in the Having Our Say/Bridges of Madison County sweepstakes. It comprises a serial letter of advice, written between one mid-November and Christmas, by Olga, an old Italian woman, for her fugitive granddaughter in America. In it, Olga describes her own thwarted intellectual hunger, unhappy marriage, gratifying adultery, and traumatic loss of her only daughter - all the while admonishing the daughter's daughter to be her own woman (which, essentially, she's already doing). The best that can be said for this sententious offertory of feminine wisdom is that it's smoothly written and translated and its bromides go down easily. Follow Your Heart won Italy's Premio Donna Citta di Roma in 1994. Che sara sara. (Kirkus Reviews)
