This had the potential to be a wonderful story Set in Italy and told from the perspectives of the three main characters the story shifted seamlessly between the 1970s and the WWII occupation of Italy by the Nazis The characters are interesting the plot intriguing The author s voice has a lyrical uality that lends itself well to this story I learned much about Italy during the war and the work of those who secretly resisted first the Fascists and then the Nazis Though the mother in the story is difficult to like it is obvious from the start that she has very serious reasons for her behavior Waiting to learn the details of what led her to become such a different person from her younger self was what kept me reading In the end it all made senseThe major detraction for me was that the book should have had far superior editing leading to a rewrite It reads as though an earlier draft rather than the finished polished product was published Too bad because if not for that it would have been a truly lovely story
