Florence, Italy; September 1943: A country at peace seems within reach now that an armistice has been declared. And as they celebrate their mother's birthday, the Cammaccio sisters have every reason to be happy. Caterina has had the final fitting for her wedding dress and Isabella is about to begin her last year at the university. Then the German occupation begins. Unsure if her fiance is alive, Caterina witnesses the human cost of war from the hospital where she works, while Isabella throws herself into the Resistance. As the winter deepends, the sisters make decisions that will change their lives and echo for the next sixty years. In present-day Florence, Inspector Alessandro Pallioti is asked to take over a routine investigation into the murder of a lonely old man. But in his youth the victim had been a partisan hero, and it's soon obvious that the crime is much more that an ordinary burglary gone wrong. Pallitoti finds himself racing against time to solve a mystery that is every bit as deadly today as it was sixty years ago in the winter of Florence's terror...when the lives of two sisters were shattered.
Lucretia Grindle was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and grew up spending half her time in the United States and half her time in the UK. Continuing as she started out, she still splits her time, but now calls the coast of Maine home.
