For seventeen-year-old Connie, however, the newcomers provide a tantalising glimpse of the wider world a world beyond the gossip and petty concerns traded over the counter of Cleat's Corner Store. Under their father's stern eye, the Onorati brothers adapt to their new life in remarkably different ways. While the charismatic Vittorio is determined to reinvent himself and embrace all things English, the solitary Lucio is haunted by the secrets of his past, events that tether him to the war in the mountains of Lazio. As both brothers begin to cast an unexpected influence over Leyton, Connie realises that, like them, she must grapple with her ambitions and dreams for the future. But what can any of them hope to find in the ruins of all they've lost?"@en ;
