Inspired by the life of the world's first woman war correspondent, Australia's Louise Mack, the most sweeping love story yet by Pamela Hart.
Italy, 1917. Australian journalist Rebecca Quinn is an unconventional woman.
At the height of World War I, she has given up the safety of her Sydney home for the bloody battlefields of Europe, following her journalist husband to the front line as a war correspondent in Italy.
Reporting the horrors of the Italian campaign, Rebecca finds herself thrown together with American-born Italian photographer Alessandro Panucci and soon discovers another battleground every bit as dangerous and unpredictable: the human heart.
A passionate and poignant love story set on the beautiful Italian coast by the best-selling author of The Soldier's Wife and The War Bride.
