Read full description of the books Pippo's War:act and fiction weave together to create an epic love story which begins in Northern Italy during the closing months of the Second World War and will span the globe.
Coming of age is hard enough for Pippo, the son of a Fascist Italian diplomat, but when his father is arrested, he is forced to question the old family allegiance to the Fascist cause. His mother, originally aligned with Italy against her native Britain, decides to hide escaped allied soldiers from the occupying Nazis, and in so doing finds that love and war often go hand in hand.
Pippo’s mother rescues Hannah, a young Italian Jew whose parents were murdered and Pippo begins a romance with her. The family are drawn into the Resistance and there is an increasingly menacing undertone of war, which erupts with tragic consequences as the retreating German army arrive in the area.
Pippo and Hannah are forced apart. As paths divide and fates collide, can one young man fly in the face of all opposition to be with the one he loves?
An historical novel full of period detail, an epic love story, and a classic coming-of-age tale, Pippo’s war will leave you spellbound and hungry for more.
Read information about the authorI was born in London in 1949, and trained as a sculptor in Paris. I fell in love with Abstract Expressionism, and moved to the United States in 1974. In 1982, I began to divide my time between a studio in Italy and New York City where I regularly exhibited my work. During this period, I wrote short stories about my summers on a farm in the Tuscan hills and became interested in the history of the area.
After a hiatus during which I married, raised two gorgeous children and took an MA at the Tavistock Centre in London, I began work on my debut novel Pippo's War which will be published in May 2015.
I am currently researching my second novel and leading a happily peripatetic life with my historian husband.
