About This Book

In an Italian coastal village in 1949, Marcello Romero, son of a poor fisherman, dreams of the beautiful Elana Gamboccini. His chances of getting a date with her are slim as his rival, Armond Cessero, is the son of an ice-cream magnate. Nevertheless, Marcello follows the village tradition and tries to find a gift for her father in an attempt to win his daughter's hand. Remembering the butcher's cockerel that wakes Elena's father every morning, Marcello thinks that he's found the perfect present. But how is he to obtain a cockerel that no one wants to sell? And even then, at how high a price?
