The Widow’s New Umbrella: An Italian Fable

May 18, 2015

In the remote Italian village of San Porphyry it always rains. Every day. Every hour. Every minute. Always. As the one and only umbrella peddler, Signor Baptista has grown accustomed to being the most important man in town. But when the Widow Marcella has a vision that the rains will stop and the sun will return to San Porphyry after countless centuries, she turns Baptista’s shop and the entire village upside-down. As the townsfolk await the Widow’s miracle, anticipation builds, hope stirs, and love blossoms in the most impossible of places.
