The Right Ingredients for a Great Book,
This review is from: The Wedding Officer (Hardcover)
I was recently searching the shelves of my local bookstore looking for a book with all my favourite ingredients - A mixture of World War 2, Italy and of course a generous helping of romance. The Wedding Officer was exactly what I was looking for.
Although I have never been to Naples I was married in Tuscany 3 years ago and have had a love affair with Italy ever since. The vivid description of its people, landscape and amazing food in the book brought back all the memories I have of the place and I felt almost home sick, desperate to go back!
I also fell in love with the story between James and Livia and really felt the connection between them. I only wish I could speak Italian the way that James can!
As a big fan of war stories I was really intrigued by the description of wartime Naples and the people's experiences. I also enjoyed the closeness to history which was obviously researched so carefully.
I only hope that the film planned for next year will do the book justice and that they carefully choose the Italian Livia and English James of the big screen.
