About Among Petals and Thorns:
The work was awarded for the best female protagonist in the National Literary Competition 2021
” R come Romance”, in Bologna, with the original title “Even cacti have petals”, now it is the subtitle.
It belongs to the Romance genre, often inserted between the pink fiction, to indicate a non-committal narrative for the reader and with a happy ending.
This defi nition does not always reflect the Romance which instead is linked to discussion of topics with deeper content, sometimes dealing with social issues, where the characters reach psychological maturity. It is the case of this novel, where love affairs are not an end in themselves, they imply social behaviours, such as women’s affirmation in the field of work and problems such as stalking.
Set in the pandemic era, the narrative is a compendium of good feelings and triumphs in the strength of friendship, where the events of three female figures unfold.
