The title alone was enough—at least for me to download a sample on Amazon. But after the first chapter, I went straight on to midnight…literally.

Read the review below that I posted on Goodreads.

Under the Light of the Italian Moon

Jennifer Anton constructed a beautiful novel around family accounts of life in Italy through two world wars—that alone would have drawn me to read this book. In addition to the extensive research, which was impressive, several of the women this story is anchored around are worthy of their own novella. The author takes us through a period of roughly 30-some years where these strong women of Fonzasa in Northern Italy confront danger, protect themselves and those around them, give up desires and personal wishes, but ultimately triumph. Nina was my hero, or heroine perhaps, and at the end of the book, I found myself missing her in my “life.”
