Packing everything she owns into one suitcase, she makes a half-hearted promise to her husband, Nini, that she will return to Italy—and to him. As Regina embarks on her long journey, she recalls her sister-in-law’s wedding-day warnings—the possibility of facing many cold nights at home alone, the rumors about Nini and his female students. Now, Regina must say good-bye to the father who left her long ago, as she nurses her freshest wound: the loss of the pregnancy she hoped would save her deteriorating marriage. Home in America for the first time in years, Regina has a choice: to repair the relationships damaged by her departure or come to terms with her lonely life in a foreign land.
