“Almost eighty years and an ocean separate John Ragnar, a pilot with a mysterious past, from the photographs he found in a box on the beach in Clearwater near a diver in coma. The desire to give a voice to the nude young woman portrayed in the Italian Riviera, will bring John in a journey of discovery of terrible times and the power of romance.”
Yes, I did it, I wrote a novel.
In the past years I had the time to immerse myself in my family archive and I had a confirmation of the importance of photographs and the stories around the images.
Real printed images that I was able to see with just my eyes and a simple source of light.
But sometime we find images and there is nobody around to tell their stories. Sometime is just too late in time, and sometime the image traveled far away from the people who knows the story.
On the antique markets we often find old photographs, most of the time of people we don’t know, and we will never know who they were and how was their life.
All this made me think about the importance of photographs and their stories. Specially now that almost all the photographs are just bits of data in some hard disk and not visible without instruments.
This novel is to show what kind of meaning and stories a picture can reveal. A story that set in two continents and 80 years.
The novel was edited by Whitney Brown, and she did a great job to smooth my italenglish, so don’t worry!
It is available on Amazon worldwide. Enjoy it.
