August 15, 1839, Messina, Italy. In the home of Marshall don Peppino Padellani di Opiri, preparations for the feast of the Ascension are underway, but for Agata, the Marshall's daughter, there are more important matters at hand. She and the wealthy Giacomo Lepre have fallen in love. Her mother, however, is determined that the two young people will not marry. When, one month later, Marshall don Peppino dies, Agata's mother decides to ferry her daughter away from Messina, to Naples, where she hopes to garner a stipend from the king and keep her daughter far from trouble's reach. They travel to Naples on a boat captained by the young Englishman, James Garson. Following a tempestuous passage to Naples, during which Agata confesses her troubles to James, Agata and her mother find themselves rebuffed by the king and Agata is forced to join a convent. The Benedictine monastery of San Giorgio Stilita is rife with rancor and jealousy, illicit passions and ancient feuds. Agata remains aloof, devoting herself to the cultivation of medicinal herbs, calmed by the steady rhythms of monastic life. Through letters she stays in contact with Garson, reading all the books he sends her, and follows the news of the various factions struggling to bring unity to Italy. Though she didn't choose to enter the convent and is divided between her yearnings for purity and religiosity and her desire to be part of the world, something about the cloistered life reverberates within her. Agata is increasingly torn when she realizes that her feelings for Garson, though he is only a distant presence in her life, have eclipsed those for Lepre.--From inside front cover

Nessuno può volare by Simonetta Agnello Hornby( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When we are born in a family like that of Simonetta Agnello Hornby, we grow up with the awareness that we are all normal, but different, each with its own characteristics, sometimes a bit "strange". So naturally, of a blind man, it is said that "he does not see well;" of the limping, "he struggles to walk;" of the obese, "he is heavy;" of the invalid, "he is missing a leg;" of the fool, "sometimes he does not understand;" of the Deaf', with him we must speak aloud," without ever thinking that it was defects or impairments. Through a series of rich and affectionate portraits, we meet Nanni, the deaf-mute; the nanny Giuliana, who is lame; father with a diseased leg; and Aunt Rosina, the kleptomaniac - when the silverware disappears from the table, the relatives they sneak up to remove the cutlery from their pockets, slowly, without realizing it, because they do not have to be embarrassed ... And then of course we meet George, Simonetta's eldest son. It is not easy to accept the illness of a child, yet it is possible, and the keystone lies in that thought that "nobody can fly": "As we can not fly, so George could no longer walk: this would not prevent him from enjoy life in other ways. In life there is more than flying, and perhaps even walking. We have found it, that richness". The same daily purpose also comes to us from George - who for fifteen years has been living with multiple sclerosis - whose voice alternates with that of the mother as an ironic but decisive counterpoint in telling the many obstacles, and perhaps some advantages, of those who he moves in a wheelchair. Simonetta Agnello Hornby takes us on a journey from Sicily to the parks of London, through the artistic beauties of Italy. A journey that is also - above all - a flight over prejudices and clichés, to give us, together with many touching stories, a new look. More free. "A brown and white pigeon, perched on a tall branch, looked at us curiously. A rustle of feathers and it flew away; it hovered high, magnificent, with wings spread, the sky was bright, almost cloudless. That flight was enough to bring me back to reality. All the birds know how to fly, but no human being has ever succeeded. Nobody. Nobody can fly."
