See WWII though Italian eyes, a first for me. Loved the descriptions of food, family and the sites of Rome. Makes me want to return and explore more. Elizabetta, Marco and Sandro have been best friends forever and fall in love just as the war powers are getting established. Eventually Fascism takes over, Jews are penalized, Nazis invade and the Jewish population is sent to concentration camps and Italian population is about to come undone. Truths revealed. At times the story seems to be a little melodramatic and could have been shortened but all and all well researched and a compelling story which you will enjoy.
