The epic second novel in the internationally acclaimed trilogy, set in the rugged mountains of the Veneto.Winter 1868. On the rugged mountains of the Veneto, the inhabitants have by now almost completely disappeared: most of them, oppressed by appalling poverty, have emigrated to America in search of a better life. Holding on to this breathtaking, lonely landscape, is the De Boer family.But their precious tobacco smuggling gold is stolen by bandits, and Jole De Boer, now twenty, must face the disaster alone, armed only with her father’s old rifle. During the chase, Jole passes through woods and deserted snow-covered villages on a journey that will force her to go much further than she ever imagined.”Because, unlike the border between two countries, the border between good and evil can almost never be detected with the naked eye.” This is the epic second novel in the internationally acclaimed trilogy that began with Soul of the Border, telling the story of the De Boer family, and the endless human search for redemption.
