批評家のレビュー

"Unique, emotional and life-affirming." (Melanie Hudson, author of The Last Letter from Juliet)

"I felt I was walking alongside Stella over bridges and along canals at every heartstopping moment.... Wonderful." (Molly Green, author of An Orphan’s Wish)

あらすじ・解説

The highly awaited new novel from the internationally bestselling author of The German Midwife (also published as A Woman of War). 

Venice, 1943

The world is at war and Stella Jilani is leading a double life. By day she works in the lion’s den as a typist for the Reich; by night, she risks her life as a messenger for the Italian resistance. Against all odds, Stella must impart Nazi secrets, smuggle essential supplies and produce an underground newspaper on her beloved typewriter.

But when German commander General Breugal becomes suspicious, it seems he will stop at nothing to find the mole and Stella knows her future could be in jeopardy.

London, 2017

Years later, Luisa Belmont finds a mysterious old typewriter in her attic. Determined to find out who it belonged to, Luisa delves into the past and uncovers a story of fierce love, unimaginable sacrifice and, ultimately, the worst kind of betrayal....

Set between German-occupied 1940s Venice and modern-day London, this is a fascinating tale of the bravery of everyday women in the darkest corners of WWII, for listeners of The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.

Brilliant

I was unsure about this book but decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did!!! A story about the 2nd WW resistance and Venice in a book.
I was absolutely gripped as it was about two subjects that I’m very interested in and a recent visit to Venice.
I could place all the streets and places of interest and found myself walking the path again.
Narrators were brilliant, loved the idea of two narrators which worked very well.
Very recommended

Gripping

This story had me gripped from the first chapter. Left me wanting more knowledge of Stella.

It hits home exactly what people went through to ensure we are able to live the life we do today and what heroes they really are. So often this is forgotten.

Awesome.

An unforgettable read.

A story with true meaning, which transports you with ever chapter to the time when Venice was occupied. The lives and heartache that capture you, making you understand the anguish at having their beloved city ruled by war.

A true favourite.

Enjoyed both the present and the past couldn’t stop listening!
