The Lost Daughter by Elena Ferrante (Europa Editions, 2021)
Family and relationships are a big theme in Elena Ferrante’s books. She is perhaps best known for My Brilliant Friend (ISBN: 978178 7702226, paperback, Europa Editions, 2020), which I heartly recommend (possibly while holidaying in Sorrento, sipping an iced Limoncello, looking over to Naples – just a suggestion!). However, I’m going to point you towards The Lost Daughter (ISBN: 9781787704183). A story of womanhood, motherhood and the consequences of difficult choices, explored through the conflicting emotions these two states can sometimes evoke.
