Is there life after death? A Hidden Sicilian History presents an intriguing and easy-to-read historical novel that starts with the investigation of a mysterious death.
While doing research in the public library in Enna, Sicily, a young man notices an ancient scroll has drifted from a shelf onto the floor. It appears to have slipped from a gap between two volumes about the Spanish Inquisition.
Expecting it to be related to life in Sicily at the time of Spanish rule, instead the handwritten scroll reports a singular drama that was performed on the stage of the deconsecrated Church of Santa Croce in Enna some time ago.
The young man decides to translate the fascinating lost manuscript from Italian into English and publish it. Historical facts flow freely from the document, as well as its descriptions of traditional feasts and processions, the way to remove hexes and roundworms from children, and life in Enna’s public whorehouse. It also touches on other societies bound together by a common thread: the yearning to understand the meaning of life.
The novel’s theme becomes a journey into the innermost recesses of the soul.
