Hi all,

I have a patron looking for a book she read “about 60 years ago”: the title
is the man’s name so two words – main protagonist is French or Italian (or
otherwise European) – of a richer, upper class background – died when he
was chopping down a tree and his ax hit a stone embedded in the trunk(?!)..

Thanks for any leads!
