Driven by the fear of encroaching death, an elderly woman describes to a write a long letter to her granddaughter, in the shape of a diary. Part love letter and part confession, it is most importantly a bequest from an old woman at last brave enough to acknowledge that she has too long repressed her feelings and submitted to convention. Reliving everything that has happened to her she seeks to remind her granddaughter that the one worthwhile journey in life to the centre of oneself, in search of that original voice we all guard deep inside.

Review quote

Compulsively readable * Elle * One of the best novels of the '90s * L'Avvenire * [Follow Your Heart] has enormous charm and is packed with a philosophical wisdom we can immediately understand; it is narrated with a beguiling simplicity and intimacy so that the reader appears to have intruded upon a private correspondence -- Carl McDougall * Glasgow Herald * Extremely moving... This is a novel that will sweep you off your feet should you be lucky enough to read it * Books *

I went backpacking for 6 months around Europe and read lots and lots of books along the way. This book was the only one that I brought home with me. I think about it often. Great read!show more
