Publisher's Summary

In 1944 Tom Wainwright, a British soldier, arrives in the small Italian town of Petriano. He forges a friendship with the Parini family - and in particular with the eldest daughter, Giuliana. When the war ends he chooses to stay in Italy, planning to build a life with the woman he loves, but his hopes are dashed. Fifty years later Isabel Wainwright, Tom's daughter, sets off for Petriano herself. Isabel's aim is to find her father, who walked out of her life nearly 20 years earlier. She doesn't even know whether her father is alive, but hopes that by discovering something of his past, she can build a picture of the man she hardly knew.

What the Critics Say

"A superbly crafted novel that deserves to be called the new Captain Corelli or perhaps the new Birdsong...Moving, elegiac and lyrical." (Daily Mail)
