"A young Italian woman risks her life to defy the injustice
surrounding her in Margaret Wurtele's The Golden Hour, a
touching novel of forbidden love in war-torn Italy.... It is
autumn 1943 when German forces invade the peaceful vineyards
and olive groves of Giovanna Bellini's village in Tuscany.
At first, the seventeen-year-old finds herself fascinated by
the dashing Nazi officers. She has yet to come face-to-face
with the harsh realities of war. Her life changes when her
brother joins the resistance and recruits her to smuggle
food. What begins as a lark takes a drastic turn when she's
asked to hide a wounded freedom fighter, for Mario Rava is
not just a partisan--he's also a Jew. As Giovanna helps
Mario heal, their bond deepens. But the world around them is
in upheaval, and terrible truths are slowly being
revealed--truths that will endanger countless lives, as well
as the love that has grown between them..."--
