Product Details


“[A] sweeping novel that explores humanity, family loyalty, and national prejudice in the face of war… a wonderful read.”—Historical Novels Review 

“Lusciously told . . . Truly engrossing . . . Throughout, Love effectively examines the clash of class and nationality while offering a distinctive historical portrait. Readers of love-touched historicals and those wanting to chew on big issues will both be satisfied.”Library Journal

“A period romance built on several layers of love stories…. Love’s research into the suffering of less-well-documented wartime figures and the messiness of the postwar period lends credible sadness to her narrative, underpinning both the central love story and other affairs of the heart. Dodging many predictabilities, the story reaches an appealing conclusion in 1947, with mature choices for its mingled Italian and British cast. In keeping with her name, Love delivers a satisfying romantic tale enhanced by its bittersweet aftertaste.”Kirkus Reviews
