The Lost Word

In the world, there has existed a stable and just society, based on spirituality; a society that has been destroyed in order to be forgotten. We must take it as a model in order to give a sense of real hope that life will, for future generations, once more, achieve harmony.

Elena, the protagonist of this novel by Fabrizio Guarducci, is motivated by a recurring nightmare to begin a journey that will lead her to learn about her existence in a past, perfect democracy that has been forgotten by history. The novel also explores the meaning of love; not that courteous ritual tending more to desire than to sentiment that is so common today, but a daily path towards completion to be carried out alongside a loved one.

In a dizzying ride that’s filled with suspense, the journey starts from Siena and moves towards Paris. Guarducci gives us a surprising love story that’s as captivating as a thriller, finding its resolution in an unexpected final twist. A novel that is also a fable about the search for true feeling and spirituality that, through love, brings feelings into a final, complete and humanistic concept.
