Summary:

"Italy, 1943 - Germany occupies much of the country, placing the Jewish population in grave danger during World War II. As children, Eva Rosselli and Angelo Bianco were raised like family but divided by circumstance and religion. As the years go by, the two find themselves falling in love. But the church calls to Angelo and, despite his deep feelings for Eva, he chooses the priesthood. 
Now, more then a decade later, Angelo is a Catholic priest and Eva is a woman with nowhere to turn. With the Gestapo closing in, Angelo hides Eva within the walls of a convent, where Eva discovers she is just one of many Jews being sheltered by the Catholic Church. 
But Eva can't quietly hide, waiting for deliverance, while Angelo risks everything to keep her safe. With her world at war and so many in need, Angelo and Eva face trail after trail, choice after agonizing choice, until fate and fortune finally collide, leaving them with the most difficult decision of all."




Why i am waiting.... 


I really enjoy different aspects of a World War 2 stories, that are not the typical front line or solider stories. But rather a "background" story, talking about the normal lives of people that had nothing to do with anything of the political sides that caused the wars.

I also think this books sounds interesting with the jews and catholic church aspects, and seeing how the author combines the two different religions, if she will try to make the catholic church the "big saver" (as i sadly read about way to often) or just be a helpful hand. 

And you can never read enough historical fictions in my opinion!
