An isolated Tuscan farmhouse on the edge of an ancient wood is the perfect setting for a late September holiday.
As a group of old friends from university and their families gather to relax and unwind, all are hoping it will be a chance to put the tragic events of the previous year behind them.
There were six of them once; now they are are five. Watching the British visitors arrive from her own terrace is Anna Viola, whose family has lived for centuries in the crumbling red-brick farmhouse above Il Vignacce.
As a little girl during the war, Anna watched an Englishman arrive at the house, seeking shelter from the Germans.
His appearance would change her life for ever; it still haunts the family home she holds in trust for her beloved son Paolo.
