Lanterns in the Dark 6. Ravello series

   (5 reviews)
Genres: General Fiction
Sub-genres: Drama, Coming of Age

A novel in twelve chapters.

Summer again. Thirteen-year-old Daniele Ferrero reaches out to Marco, a lonely and vulnerable boy who has lost his only friends. Meanwhile, teenage couple Toto and Michele take stock of their future, and Gianni and Angelo suffer a loss.

There’s trouble in paradise for all concerned. What truths will be revealed when darkness falls?

This story contains spoilers for all the other books in this series, but particularly ‘Dani the Hero’, to which it is a direct sequel. As ever, I would recommend reading the earlier stories first.

Growing up is never easy, especially for kids of all ages, as the vagaries of life constantly challenge, not only what you knew and what you thought you knew.

A fantastic coming of age story that will keep you enthralled, as we once again find ourselves in Ravello, wandering the sleepy back alleyways and hidden passages, as our protagonists face the challenges that await them!

@James Carnarvon's works stimulate the senses. One rejoices in the sound of the ever-present cicadas in their daily scraping; in the smell of the oleanders and fragrant grape vines; in the taste of the lemons, aubergines and tomatoes which flavour so much of daily life in Ravello; in the touch of the light breeze or the scorching midday sun; and in the sight of the beauty of nature which abounds. 

Another journey to Ravello is like experiencing a myriad of pleasures all at the same time. The regular “cast” Gianni, Angelo, Claudia, Toto, Michele are back and welcome the return of Giacomo, Emilia, Marco and Dani, the superhero who once again proves to be pivotal in the lives of so many.

I shall not reveal any of the plot in my review as to do so would ruin the feast to be had in reading this most wondrous of books. Ebullient, poignant, beautiful and enriching; the rewards reaped in reading this delight are bountiful, much like reading its predecessors in the Ravello series.  

Response from the author:

A ‘superhero’ whose power is empathy 😅. Readers seeking a Marvel-style story should look elsewhere.

Thank you for the lovely review!

A teen summer vacation story which will recall memories for every reader.  Long languid days,  humid nights, friends, family, community, loss, first love … beautifully written .

Another great Ravello story. When I read these I always feel as if I am getting glimpses of real people's lives in this beautiful part of Italy. The theme of this one is friendship and how it inevitably changes as teenagers grow up, experiencing the ups and downs of first love and new emotions they don't quite understand yet.

Dani and Giaco start the summer in Ravello happily boating with friends.  They even rescue three illegal immigrants from Africa, Sami (a 7 year old orphan) and his aunt and uncle.  It goes down from there as Dani seems loses his friendships one by one with disastrous kisses, and the unexpected insecurities and feelings common to their age group.  He feels alone, especially when two of his older friends break up.  You will feel the emotions he feels as he faces the future, faces danger, and finally rebuilds his life, back with his friends.  This is another beautiful Ravello story by @James Carnarvon that you will love.
