Beschreibung

Italy, 1943 - Germany occupies much of the country, placing the Jewish population in grave danger during World War II.
As children, Eva Rosselli and Angelo Bianco were raised like family but divided by circumstance and religion. As the years go by, the two find themselves falling in love. But the church calls to Angelo and, despite his deep feelings for Eva, he chooses the priesthood.
Now, more than a decade later, Angelo is a Catholic priest and Eva is a woman with nowhere to turn. With the Gestapo closing in, Angelo hides Eva within the walls of a convent, where Eva discovers she is just one of many Jews being sheltered by the Catholic Church.
But Eva can't quietly hide, waiting for deliverance, while Angelo risks everything to keep her safe. With the world at war and so many in need, Angelo and Eva face trial after trial, choice after agonizing choice, until fate and fortune finally collide, leaving them with the most difficult decision of all.

Story & Narration perfect 5 ☆'s!

An epic story of love and human spirit
10☆'s!! 5☆'s is not enough.
An epic and touching story of courage, sacrifice, faith, hope and love amidst the devestation, trauma and turmoil of World War 2.
It was in the darkest time of world's history and of Mankind. In a time where hope is hard to grasp, where fear and uncertainty becomes a daily threat, and where you ask why God is silent. No matter what God you prayed to, it was the time you had to hang on to your faith or give up entirely. It was in these horrowing times where Humanity is at it's worst and Humanity at it's finest. Where miracles, no matter how small, can have a big effect when life is at stake. Proof that God is not silent after all. Humanity at it's best from different religions risked their lives in helping Jews. And found one God. The God of love.
Behind all of this is the love of two people who grew up as a family but couldn’t be together because of their religion and faith will touch your heart and soul. Their quest of overcoming fear, keeping their love alive and giving up their Faith & Fate....and their survival in God's mercy. I am gutted of all that they've been through. Their Love inspite of fear they found their courage from rach other. I was completely sucked into their world and it was difficult to walk away as my life continued on. I kept on coming back to Eva and Angelo's story in my mind. And my emotions and state of being are brought into the story. As if living it with them and witnessing their story and history unfold. Living the moments through the bestselling author's magnificent story telling.

Amy Harmon eloquently tells this beautiful story of true heroism, faith and love. A MASTERPIECE!
