Francesca, my heroine… Athena, my mother… Life at war, her life… Her story, her tale, her choices, our relationship and the nineteen years I lived with her. My mother was at war with everyone: with me, with my friends, with her family, with life itself… Along with her story are my childhood and teen years. Words that were never spoken, ommissions that brought pain, actions that hurt, lost embraces and tears. All are found here, within these pages which, in addition to being a biography, also became an painful journey into my yesterday, my beginnings…
