  • An emotional story

    This novel begins in Rome in1937; Elisabetta, Marco and Sandro are teenagers and close friends. Sandro's family is Jewish, and he lives in comfort with his lawyer father, doctor mother, and sister Rosa who are assimilated Italians. However, as the Italian Fascists ally themselves with Nazi Germany, life becomes increasingly difficult for the Jews of Italy. Through love and loss, the stories of the three friends and their families are told very well in this moving historical novel. An powerful read.

  • Phenomenal

    I have been a fan of Lisa Scottoline for a long time. With this jump into historical fiction, she has cemented herself one of my all-time favorite authors. This is my favorite of hers so far. World War II is such an amazing time. The strength of the people who lived during, the horrors they had to endure, and the lives they came out living all have me in awe. Lisa Scottoline tells the story of young love, best friends, and surviving all while bring history alive. I devoured this book. The setting of Rome was brought alive by Lisa’s words. I could picture the ghetto that Sandro was forced to live in, the office building that Marco worked, and the restaurant that Elisabetta worked in. The characters came alive as I learned about their lives and saw all that they were willing to do for each other during a time when just staying alive was hard enough. I became invested in their well being and their happiness. Everything about this book is phenomenal. I love when an author steps out of their normal genres and hits a homerun writing in a new genre. Lisa Scottoline did exactly that.
