The sun hung low in the sky, casting pink light all over the city. A faint breeze blew over the rooftops, as flocks of starlings swirled above her, swooping and diving in unison. It seemed unimaginable that, even now, German soldiers were marching along the streets below. It was time, she decided, for direct action. It was time to fight back. Each morning Livia Moretti makes her way from an apartment overlooking Florence's famous Duomo to a nearby café, where she drinks espresso and reads the newspaper. To the crowds of tourists who pass by, snapping selfies, nothing about Livia will be memorable. She is simply an old lady. They walk on without knowing the part she played in ensuring the future of this beautiful city. And to Livia now, those dark days feel very far away too. But today, when she opens the paper, she sees a name she has not heard for a long time. A name that will bring memories flooding back of Nazi troops marching through the city and the dangers she faced as a young woman, carrying out secret missions for the resistance. Isabella Bellucci. A siren of the silver screen, Isabella cultivated all the right connections to ensure her rise to stardom. But when Rome falls to the Nazis, Isabella is suddenly faced with the choice between protecting herself, and all she has worked for, or sacrificing everything to save the man she loves. As the war rages across Europe, a terrible misunderstanding causes the fates of Isabella and Livia to become forever intertwined. And each woman must decide what they're willing to risk, to protect the ones they hold dear from a brutal enemy. Inspired by the incredible true stories of two women in wartime Italy, this is a heart-wrenching and unforgettable tale of love, resistance, betrayal and hope. Fans of Kate Furnivall, Fiona Valpy and My Name is Eva will be absolutely gripped by this sweeping Second World War novel.

An urgent knock on the wooden farmhouse door breaks the midnight silence. Heart racing, she tip-toes down the stairs, draws back the bolts and gazes into the eyes of a stranger. "Please, signorina. I must find a way to send my message. The war depends upon it." Italy, 1943. On her nonna's tomato farm in the hills outside Naples, sheltering a soldier with an English accent is the most dangerous thing Carmela del Bosco could do. But with one look at his wounds, Carmela is filled with hatred for those who would tear apart her beautiful home and decides to risk everything, hiding the stranger in an abandoned watchtower outside the village. In his pain and fever, he murmurs in English, but insists his name is Sebastiano and that he has a message to send that will end the war. Carmela tends to his injuries and smuggles fresh pasta from her grandmother to the watchtower whenever she can. But just as his strength returns - and passion grows between them - they are seen and betrayed by a member of Carmela's own family. With their lives on the line, the pair flee down the mountains into the city of Naples, where German soldiers patrol every street. Desperate, Sebastiano begs Carmela to send the message for him. But as soon as she hears it, her blood runs cold... Can she find the courage to do what's right for her country, if it threatens the lives of everyone she loves? Will she ever see her beloved nonna again? And can she trust Sebastiano with her heart - or will he lead her into terrible danger? An absolutely stunning and heartbreaking historical novel about the choices people are forced to make in wartime, and how one act of incredible bravery can change everything.

Immigrant girls are disappearing across fin de siècle Paris in a mystery that “shines a light on both the glamor and the grime of” the City of Light (Publishers Weekly). On a sultry night in June 1897, Pyotr Ivanovich Balenov, a young Russian, and two young women transport a dead man through the narrow streets of a working class neighborhood in northeastern Paris. They throw the body into the canal and the girls flee to the Latin Quarter to hide with one of the Russian’s anarchist “comrades.” They do not realize they, too, are being watched. Their subsequent disappearance and the violent acts that follow will set Clarie Martin, a teacher and mother of a toddler, and her husband, magistrate Bernard Martin (last seen in Cezanne’s Quarry and The Blood of Lorraine) on a dangerous quest to rescue them from a vicious killer.

"An accomplished, absorbing and superbly structured novel of love and war." Amazon reviewer, Canada "A poignant and vibrant exploration of love, betrayal, remorse and joy." Amazon reviewer, UK Two inter-twined love stories, separated by half a century. A gripping wartime saga of soldiers and their girlfriends, devotion and betrayal, heroism and treachery. A stirring contemporary single-dad romance about mothers and their sons, loneliness and longing, family secrets and lies... During one of Europe's darkest hours, the brutal occupation of Fascist Italy in 1944-5, nineteen-year-old Siegfried 'Sigi' Brandt is stationed with the German army in the spectacularly remote village of Madonna del Bosco, far from the front line of battle. Sigi falls for alluring local beauty Tiziana, a descendant of witches. Secretive about her family's affiliations, wary of accusations of collaboration, Tiziana meets Sigi furtively in the old coven's den up on the hillside. From the mountains, as she casts her seductive spell on the German boy, the Resistance threatens the tiny garrison and the villagers must make painful choices. 65 years later, Sigi's English grandson, single-dad Ben, abandons London with his five-year-old son to live the simple life in the same quaint village, now a hippy haven. Old Siegfried, aged and infirm, arrives from Hamburg to visit his family and to revisit his past. Whilst wooing his own Italian girl under sunny skies - feisty, childless, unhappily married Antonella - Ben unearths a disturbing secret about his grandfather's wartime romance. With its brave cast of female characters and its moving tale of love and war, this family saga - about mothers and their sons, grandfathers and their grandsons, lovers and their adultery - will appeal broadly. Readers of literary fiction will enjoy the novel's sensual imagery and its time-shifting chronology. Fans of war-time fiction will be hooked by its suspenseful treatment of Nazi oppression and Resistance. Devotees of literary romance will take pleasure in the joys, and suffer the pains, of the book's two paramours, Sigi and Ben, each under the spell of his own Italian amica. 'The shifts between past and present, together with their associated themes of romance, treachery, loneliness and lust, give the novel a powerful momentum.' 'This is deft writing indeed, as Stephen Hale juggles themes of loyalty, romance, treachery and redemption in this compelling tale of war and its aftermath - a remarkable achievement for a debut novelist taking on a work of such scope.' For those who enjoyed 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin', 'The English Patient' and 'Birdsong', this story of passion and courage in the face of war will entertain, enthral and intrigue.
