Lila's life is turned upside down by the disappearance of her young daughter and she struggles to hold herself together. The shadow of her friend will haunt her - and vice versa.
Elena Ferrante's story of a life long friendship between Lila and Lena comes to an end in this sad and surprising final chapter.
While deep in conversation with her old lover Nino and holding his child with Lena, Lila loses sight of her own daughter who suddenly disappears. Lila's world will never be the same and, despite Lena's attempts to help her friend try to come to terms with her loss, their past comes back to haunt them and one of them finally decides that there is only one way forward.
Does this free the other or hold her prisoner to her past forever?
