Summary
"It is September 8, 1943, and fourteen-year-old Claudette Blum is learning Italian with a suitcase in her hand. She and her father are among the thousands of refugees scrambling over the Alps toward Italy, where they hope to find safety now that the Italians have broken with Germany and made a separate peace with the Allies. The Blums will soon discover that Italy is anything but peaceful, as seemingly overnight it becomes an open battleground for the Nazis, the Allies, resistance fighters, Jews in hiding, and Italian civilians trying to survive. Mary Doria Russell sets her first historical novel against this dramatic background, tracing the lives of a handful of fascinating characters: a charismatic Italian resistance leader, a priest, and Italian rabbi's family, a disillusioned German doctor. Through them, she tells the little-known but true story of the vast underground effort of the Italian citizens who saved the lives of 43,000 Jews during the final phase of the war ... Russell's third novel will introduce to an even larger audience the authentic drama of a nearly forgotten aspect of World War II's Italian front"--Front flap
