The story takes place in the last two years of the second world war Fey von Hassell the protagonist of the book lives in Friuli in North Eastern Italy The region is the theatre for fierce fighting between the Allied and Axis forces and is in the grip of a civil war From this beginning the story moves to Germany which is fast yielding to Russian and Allied forces pushing in on all fronts In a balanced restrained yet evocative fashion Catherine Bailey outlines these complicated historical events and the social environs in which Fey von Hassell moves From orderly tensed but still civilized the story turns dramatic and brutal Catherine Bailey with masterfully placed strokes delivers a fair complete and insightful portrait of the protagonist She uses Fey s own voice from letters diary entries and memoirs to reveal her feelings In so doing Catherine Bailey deeply involves the reader in the pain suffering and emotional turmoil that Fey has to withstand This book is a reminder of the catastrophic conseuences that fascist ideologies have had and can have in European history It is also a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that millions of people symbolically personified in the story in Fey s father Ulrich underwent to hand us the liberal democracies we now live in Ultimately what makes this a must read book is Catherine Bailey s fine and vivid prose It is her prose that brings the story to life transposing the reader right into the unfolding of events
