Bright Yellow Souls is a collection of heart-warming accounts in which Luca Favaro recounts his experiences while working as a nurse and taking care of elderly patients. Growing up, Favaro had an estranged relationship with his father. As an escape route from what his parents had planned for his future, he decided to enroll in nursing school. Little did he know that the decision would change the course of his life, enabling him to connect deeply with the most vulnerable by taking caring care of them and receiving so much in return. The stories include pondering on the value of every person and the brevity of life. It captures the profound moments towards the end of life through accounts such as those of eighty-six-year-old Giobatta and eighty-five-year-old Veronica, whose inspiring love renewed their youth in their old age.
Bright Yellow Souls by Luca Favaro features moving characters whose stories are many times heart-breaking but also moving and enlightening such as in the story about Sergio, a cheerful man who, though unwell, always exuded joy that lit a spark in every person he met. The stories are set in the quaint small town of Treviso, situated in Northern Italy. The work also offers information on the culture which adds to the setting of the stories in this book. A lot can be gleaned from the work including how caring for the suffering comes with a lifelong treasure of memories and important lessons. Bright Yellow Souls is a life-changing collection of stories that examine the last moments of different patients while reflecting on the gift of life.
