Rating: * * *
Two soldiers captured in Africa in WWII meet in an Italian prison camp. Along the homeward journey, they write journals: one a memoir, the other a fairy tale. Interspersed with the soldiers’ story is the story of the soldiers’ grown children years later, unraveling the war experience they didn’t hear firsthand from their parents.
What I like about this story: I knew next to nothing about Italy or the Italians during WWII, and this book filled in some details.
Thank you to NetGalley and Troubador Publishing for the copy I received in exchange for an honest review.
