Description
An enchantingly imagined romance inspired by the true story of the typewriter's invention.
Carolina Fantoni, a young contessa in nineteenth-century Italy, is going blind. Neither her parents nor her fianc? believe her. Only her friend Turri, an eccentric local inventor, understands. As darkness erases Carolina's world, she discovers one place where she can still see-in her dreams-yet she remains isolated from the outside world. Desperate to communicate with Carolina, Turri creates a peculiar contraption for her: the world's first typewriter. His gift ignites a passionate love affair that will mark both their lives forever.
