Synopsis: Maly is a novel with an exciting narrative, that captivates and intrigues from the first to the last page. Maly is the union of two Hebrew words - MA (which) e LY (for me). As in Hebrew there are no verbs to be and to be in the present tense, Maly can be translated in two ways: “what is for me?” or “what's mine?”. This is the essence of the central characters of a consistent plot, that presents the intertwined lives of Maly and Pietro; “people” that seek to give vent to the basic questions of life. Maly lost all the people she loved and had to learn to count on you, becoming a woman who developed emotional resources to reframe her own life. Pietro, despite feeling comfortable with the life he leads, goes out in search of the mystery that surrounds its origins. While Maly searches for the answers within herself, Pietro undertakes an external search to unravel the mystery that surrounds his ancestors. Each investigates the unknown side of one's being; both discover the illusions that permeate personal searches. They discover that they are just a small link in an immense chain that started long before birth.
