    Summary

    Oliver returns to Crema one year after the summer of ’83, desperate to reconcile with Elio and salvage what they once so easily found. But before the walls have a chance to come down between them, nature once again uses its cunning ways and steps in.
     
    Planning a return trip to Italy all those weeks ago had been the easiest decision of his life. There hadn’t been a singular moment of clarity, or a series of events that lead to some long-awaited epiphany – just a dawning awareness that if he didn’t get the chance to so much as lay eyes on Elio again he’d never want to breathe in the start another day. It had all seemed so simple, so finite. And yet standing here now before him in a maelstrom of dismay, Oliver had never felt more uncertain. In the short time they’d been reunited he couldn’t help but feel that his presence just seemed to bring Elio more harm and confusion than anything else.
     
    Of course, the unwelcome sight of Elio forced into a medicated slumber did nothing to alleviate that concern.
