About the author

The characters were strong as only women can be, their hearts encompassing their love and duty.
The stories of the women blew me away, they threw me into the tough times. They evolved all around me telling me about their secrets and romance, making me feel their emotions during times of strife.
Ah, a book with feels was this. A compelling read.

I've read all the authors books and loved them all but this was very special. More like this would be welcome.
Thank you Daniela. The history, the real people and their not so perfect lives and the description of the country were perfect.
An example of this is when the main character, Callie, tells Flora on a phonecall that she has hay fever. Flora is a naturopath and the first response would surely be to ask what she can offer to help ease the hay fever. Instead, Flora just accepts this fib and the story moves on. I know this is a minor detail but there are lots of instances of this in the book, and that's just irritating.
Generally this author gets really good reviews and has clearly written a lot of books so maybe her writing is just not for me.
First, university courses in Italy lasted 5 years. Elisa cannot be a doctor in just 3 years.
The racial laws that caused the expulsion of numerous professors, assistants and students from the University were enacted as early as 1938, not 1942.
The armed resistance in Italy was officially born only after the armistice, that is on 9 September 1943. Before, there may have been deserters, but they were not organized and armed and they were not called "partigiani".
Incongruities that could have been avoided had the writer done a little research work.
English speakers will not notice these Incongruities but, I did, and I could not carry-on reading.
