Painfully beautiful.

If you enjoy historical WWII fiction, then Our Darkest Night is for you! Jennifer Robson includes so many tiny details that, when combined, create a vivid picture of wartime life both in Italy and some concentration camps. This is a book about family, faith, and forbearance.

Epic! A young Jewish Italian woman has a hero -- her father. When the Nazi threat forces her to hide in the country, she meets the new hero of her story. Nina and Nico's story is heartbreaking and hopeful. The two of them are borne up by their faith in their God and in each other. There were many times when this book drove me to tears for the plight of people like them. For the suffering and humiliation that was heaped upon them. Despite the inhumane treatment all around, Nico and men like him honored their fellow human beings while at the same time recognizing the evil that had to be eradicated. This story is personal to Jennifer Robson and you can see her high regard for her characters. Beautifully done and highly recommended.
