After five extraordinary years in India, April returns to a troubled and divided Britain, now in the throes of negotiating an exit from the European Union. Torn between her desire for a quiet life in Cornwall and the magnetic pull of Italy’s charms, she is undecided about where to make her home.

Looking for answers, she visits her friend Marcello in Italy. But the more time she spends with him, the more she realises that the social dilemmas facing Italians are not so different from those that are dividing her fellow citizens. The issue of immigration, for instance, turns into a personal quest when she meets a Romanian woman struggling for acceptance in a town where small-minded attitudes prevail. Meanwhile, scores of refugees are landing on Italy’s southern shores and facing an uncertain future on a continent that is far from welcoming.

At the end of the day, April must settle somewhere. In reaching a decision on where to put down roots, the question remains: can she have her cake and eat it too?
