From the Back Cover

The story of the Italian Chapel is one of the most inspiring to emerge from the Second World War and I'm delighted that Philip Paris has chosen to tell it. In these troubled times, we can all read, mark and learn, though whether we will is another matter.
Alan Plater CBE

About the Author

For the last 25 years Philip Paris has worked in journalism and public relations. His quest to tell the story behind the Italian Chapel began in 2005 when he went to Orkney on honeymoon. During more than three years of research he has tracked down ex-POWs from the WW2 Orkney camps as well as descendants of the key artists involved in building the chapel and those involved in running Camp 60. He lives with his wife in the Highlands. The Italian Chapel is his first novel.
