Karen introduces her first novel in four years, a sweeping, historical story about identity and love, set in Italy’s most Scottish town.
September, 1943. In the hilltop town of Barga, everyone holds their breath. Even the bells fall silent. Everything Vittoria Guidi knows is at risk. German troops occupy the mountains around her home, as US Buffaloes prepare to invade – segregated black soldiers fighting for a country that refuses them the vote. Trapped, does Vittoria side with her Scots-Italian father or Fascist mother as her country – and future – is torn in two?
