This beautiful story takes place in Italy from the 1920’s and centers around a female character called
Maria and all of her family . The story begins with her as a young woman and starting her adult life , getting married , starting a family etc , then we see her life during war time and all the ups and downs her life and family face at that hard time . This was a gorgeous story set in a beautiful place , it was dreamy reading about the place she lived.
I loved how strong Maria was , and how smart . Caring for her young family during a time of political upheavals was hard but she was really the backbone of her family , they relied heavily on her and she made the best of it . A must read for those interested in books set during war time in Europe.
