Ordered by the Germans to evacuate, a group of Italian villagers flees to a farmhouse in the beautiful hills of Tuscany. As the war rages around them, the refugees confront betrayal by one villager, fearlessly house an escaped prisoner, and survive a raid by the Nazis. A young girl finds love, two boys become heroes, and secrets are revealed before an unthinkable event changes their lives forever.Inspired by experiences of Salsini's relatives, The Cielo: A Novel of Wartime Tuscany is a gripping story of courage, endurance, and the power of the human spirit.
I probably won't finish this book. The narrator's lack of emphasis and overall recording quality sound like an early version of a Librivox recording.
