The House at the Edge of Night

517vFouPnuL.jpgThe House at the Edge of Night by Catherine Banner is a three-generation saga of a family from a small island off the coast of Sicily. At the center of the story is the cafe, “The House at the Edge of the Night,” and the family who runs it. The story spans a century of history and brings the family up to 2009 by the end. It’s a delightful story, and, while I enjoyed it, it was a little flat for me. Good if you have a longer while to read it – it’s 415 pages – but it might be a slog if you are dipping in a little bit at a time.
