Product description

Review

‘As intoxicating as a glass of fine Italian wine…Set in Sicily, it is so evocative you can almost smell the scent of olives, and love, in the air. But Riotta’s novel is not just two love stories – it also contains one of the most thrilling battle sequences I’ve read in years, a fitting climax to a story so touching it fills my heart with pleasure just to write about it.’ Daily Mail

‘As romantic as Doctor Zhivago, as colourful as García Márquez, Gianni Riotta writes with the vigour of a lover and the crisp knowledge of an academic…If only historians wrote like Riotta.’ Observer

‘A splendidly conceived entertainment delivered with style and wit.’ Independent

‘An entertainment proper for the thinking person…it works for Umberto Eco, it works for Indiana Jones, and now it works for Riotta: the rip-roaring romance with the scholarly plot.’ Michael Pye, New York Times

‘Even more enchanting than Louis de Bernieres’s “Captain Correlli's Mandolin”, Riotta’s novel is a revelation.’ Daily Mail

From the Publisher

'Riotta is as romantic as Pasternak, as colourful and densely plotted as García Márquez. The nature and scale of the story are so grand, so classically elegant, it is with a jolt one remembers that the tale is set in the twentieth century. Few writers dare, or succeed, in such territory, and still fewer make the subject of war so readable.' Nicola McAllister, Observer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
