Summary
When Johanna Langley’s father Sir Hugo dies unexpectedly, she wants to understand what happened to him during WWII. He was a British bomber pilot who was shot down over German-occupied Tuscany near the town of San Salvatore. Local resident Sofia Bartoli tended to his needs at severe risk to herself, family and village. When Johanna visits San Salvatore 30 years later, no one remembers her father or wants to talk about Sophia.
Critique
A treat for fans of historical fiction.
