This is one of the best books that I've ever read

This Book Had Me Hooked

This book was well written and was riveting.

New Favorite Book

Beneath a Scarlet Sky is easily in the top 5 of books I've read! As someone who loves history and specifically WWII, I could not put the book down. The suspense and just wanting to know what happened next kept me glued to it. Such a great story of trying times, love, and triumph. There may be some historical inaccuracies but it did not stop me from loving the book. Would recommend the book.

wonderful account of German occupation in WWII Italy

This a very well-written account of the events and conditions for Italians living under severe conditions during WWII. The detailed accounts of the ways in which people, especially Jews, were rescued under harrowing,hazardous conditions are spell-binding. Once I started to read this book I could not put it down. Within accounts of political conditions are true stories of the complexities of love and hate relationships that become complicated with understandings and misunderstandings. Although I already knew a great deal about the German occupations in Europe, I still learned a lot that was important. This is an important book to read.

Great read

This was the first WWII book I read from the Italian side. Mr. Sullivan showed how the Italians were suffering under German rule. I would find myself reading until 4 in the morning. It is a great book.

One of my favorites!

A wonderful story! I often looked up the locations on Google Earth to better place myself in the scenes.

Totally enjoyed this book!

The book was so enjoyable. I love realistic historical fiction, and even more that it was based on a true story. I felt the description of wartime was accurate. The author really conveyed the despair of the times. There were some sad parts, but real. Overall, it was good, held my attention, and left me with hope.

One of my top 10 favorite books!

Well written. I have been to Northern Italy in the small town my great grandmother grew up (Trentino-Alto Adige region) Reading this I felt like I was transported back to that time Well done. What a remarkable story

Powerful and at Times Unbelievable

Thank you for this book for without it we wouldn’t have the rich history of Pino, Carletto, Father Re, Anna, or Leyers, among the many others. Mark Sullivan is the kind of author I admire and look up to when it comes to research and storytelling. As an author myself, I appreciate the attention and breadth he devoted to telling this story steeped in the most volatile time in our world’s history, as accurately as possible. Excellently researched and written. I especially enjoyed how the author tied up the end with all the characters, who by the way, I had to remind myself are/were real people. I had to continuously remind myself that these events happened - Pino lived this! Several times throughout the story I exclaimed what an amazing novel this was. We need stories like these to remind us that there are unsung heroes doing extraordinary things. Those who say their story isn’t worth telling are the ones who motivate me as an investigative writer, to want to know more, and encourage all people to tell their own stories so that we may learn from each other.

This is a “must read“ book! It is action packed and inspiring, and has stayed with me long after I f

It is action packed and inspiring, and stayed with me long after I finished the last page. The best part is that it really happened! Fantastic true story!

Absolutely amazing

I read this book at times breathless in two days. That it is completely true is even more amazing. It's an education, thrill packed, and heart breaking. Should be a must read.

This book was first published kindle. it has sold 250,000 copies on kindle

I read this book on kindle where is was published first. Now that it is in paperback i will buy a copy for my son who only reads on paper.
