Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel
by James Markert


Overview -
A story of the power of memory, Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel explores the mysteries of the mind, the truth behind lore, and the miracle of inspiration.

After thirteen months at war, Vittorio Gandy is haunted by memories, and his former life is unrecognizable. Once a gifted painter, now he can't bear the vivid, bleeding colors on a canvas. His young son doesn't remember him, and his wife, Valerie, is scared of him. But the most disconcerting change is in Vitto's father, Robert Gandy, who has fallen from being a larger-than-life sculptor to a man whose heart has been broken by the death of his muse--Vitto's mother--and whose mind has been taken by Alzheimer's.

When Robert steals away in the night, Valerie, Vitto, and his new acquaintance and fellow veteran John go to the only place Robert might remember--the now-abandoned Tuscany Hotel, where it was once rumored that creatives of all kinds could find inspiration. When they find him there, Robert's mind is sound and his memories are intact.

Before long, word gets out that drinking from the fountain at the hotel can restore the memories of those suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia. The rooms once again fill up with guests--not artists this time, but people seeking control over their memories and lives. Vitto desperately wants to clear his own mind, but as he learns more about his late mother's life and her tragic death, he begins to wonder whether drinking the water comes at a price.
