★★★★★ Oc­cu­pa­tion dur­ing the Sec­ond World War in Barga, Tus­cany, turns plans for the fu­ture of 17-year-old Vita on their head. The ar­rival of Frank Chapel, a young black US soldier, finds the Scot­tishI­tal­ian hero­ine fall­ing deeply in love. The vividly por­trayed char­ac­ters em­bark on a pas­sion­ate af­fair in trou­bled times which will test the strength of their re­la­tion­ship. Camp­bell has cre­ated an ir­re­sistible love story which, al­though fami­lar, of­fers a cap­ti­vat­ing read.
