Publisher's Summary

The Liberation is set in Italy in 1945 as British and American troops attempt to bring order to the devastated country and Italy's population fights to survive.

Caterina Lombardi is desperate - her father is dead, her mother has disappeared, and her brother is being drawn toward danger. One morning, among the ruins of the bombed Naples streets, Caterina is forced to go to extreme lengths to protect her own life and in doing so forges a future in which she must clear her father's name. An Allied Army officer accuses him of treason, and Caterina discovers a plot against her family. Who can she trust, and who is the real enemy now? And will the secrets of the past be her downfall?

This epic novel is an unforgettably powerful story of love, loss, and the long shadow of war.

    "excellent Read"

    I only selected this book to listen to by chance and I can honestly say it is an excellently written book. the Narrator really brings this book to life, you can imagine you are there, in Sorrento, Naples, Capri. I will select more by this author.

    Story
    "Italia"

    This book is filled with descriptions that fill your senses, giving you a taste of an Italy torn apart by fascism, war and its aftermath. Intertwined through a tale of greed and corruption is a love story that carries the listener along, impatient to hear what happens next, yet not wanting the story the end. With excellent narration by Imogen Church, I cannot recommend highly enough

    "I've looked at Sorrento as a holiday destination"

    The descriptions of the areas were wonderful the story managed to capture post war struggles and be predictable sweet with a twist.

    "Average read/listen"

    I persevered to the end despite the narration grating my ears. I felt the narrator was trying to act out the story with the heavy accents which detracted from my enjoyment. The story was ok but does not encourage me to read more by the author
