My House in Umbria is a powerful novel from Irish author William Trevor. It is a tale of disparate individuals coming together to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is about the influence a stranger can have on one's life. For its plot, characters, storytelling and description, we've recommended the novel on our writers' resource page as an example of incredible writing and added it to the recommended reading list for the online creative writing class we've taught.
