Publisher's Summary

Can newfound love survive the ravages of modern warfare in the land of the Queen of Sheba?
Twenty-something Ceseli Larson is mourning the recent death of her cherished father. His passing comes as she prepares to undertake a planned but harrowing expedition to the lost ruins of Axum. Axum, capital of an ancient kingdom and the possible resting place of the Ark of the Covenant, was also once the famous home of the Queen of Sheba. Ceseli hopes to uncover its long-forgotten archaeological mysteries.
What she does not count on, though, is that Benito Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia looms on the horizon, about to be unleashed, sending an already dangerous journey into chaos. Nor does she expect the feeling she discovers for a young Italian doctor, nor the romance that blossoms between them.
Love in the Land of Barefoot Soldiers is a sweeping tale of romance and war, as Ceseli is caught between the movements of empires and her growing love for a member of the invading army. History and the destruction of the modern era collide in this exciting drama.

Wonderful story

This is a historically accurate novel, with only the principal characters being fictional. It is well written, well read and ends happily. The main storyline is concerning Ethiopia in the 1930s and the invasion of the Italian fascist army. A good read.
