A Thread of Grace

A Thread of Grace

Author(s): Maria Doria Russell

Location(s): Italy

Genre(s): Fiction, Historical

Era(s): 1940s

Set in Italy towards the end of the Second World War. Fourteen year old Claudette Blum and her Father, both Jewish refugees, are learning Italian, as they escape across the Alps to Italy. The Italians have in theory broken with the Germans but Italy is still in upheaval with every faction still intent on preserving their own cause. Fascinating characters populate this well researched book and much of the detail is based on the true story of the network of Italian citizens who came to the aid of many thousands of Jewish émigrés.
