Engrossing historical fiction based on true story!

A WWII book that taught me something that I never knew about the war against the Nazis in Rome and Monsignor O’Flaherty's role in the heroic rescue of so many lives. This WWII novel sucks you right into its story from the very beginning. It has numerous characters and I found that I had to start the audio over after chapter two because I wasn’t grasping the story. Don't give up if you find this happens to you because it does get better as the story unfolds. Once I focused and listened to those initial two chapters I found that I couldn’t put the book down. Intrigue, suspense, and jaw-dropping scenarios had me concerned for the safety of those who were being hidden from the Nazis’ torture. The different narrators reading with their different accents really had me feeling as though I was present during many of the conversations. Their narration surely added to the suspense of this heartwrenching story. A very good WWII historical fiction novel that will surely keep your heart pumping quickly. It will affect you emotionally and have you feeling for the escapees as well as for the numerous heroes who risked their lives to save them.  Eager to research more on WWII in Italy and to read more from this author!
