Summary
Elena and Lila are now adults; life's great discoveries have been made, its vagaries and losses have been suffered. Through it all, the women's friendship remained the gravitational center of their lives. Both once fought to escape the violence and corruption of Naples. Brilliant and bookish, Elena succeeded but has returned to be with the man she always loved. And fiery, uncontainable Lila, who never managed to free herself, has become a successful entrepreneur and an unacknowledged leader of her world

Summary
The dazzling finale in the saga of two women: the spirited, bookish Elena and the fiery Lila. Their tumultuous friendship, formed when they were children in Naples, has always been at the heart of their lives. Elena, now a published writer, is married with three daughters. She has come back to Naples to be with the man she has always loved. Lila is a successful entrepreneur and a mother, too, but has never managed to escape the stifling neighbourhood where she grew up.
