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.

"The Soldier's Wife was an incredible story of love and devotion, but it was also much more. It was so brilliantly written that I was drawn into the lives of Ruby and Jimmy from the first page and was left holding my breath as I devoured the rest of it, hardly able to put it down. The Soldier's Wife was heartbreaking and uplifting, and will have you on the edge of your seat with its many twists and turns." (Inside My World blog on The Soldier's Wife)
