The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian

The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian, NYT bestselling author *****

This riveting novel, set in and around Florence, Italy, during World War II and ten years later centers on love, betrayal and the unimaginable losses suffered by a noble Tuscan family at the hands of the Nazis.

From the book jacket: “A breathtaking story of moral paradox, human frailty and the mysterious ways of the heart.”

From the Washington Post: “brilliantly crafted…utterly compelling.”

Mary Doria Russell’s A Thread of Grace, another unforgettable novel about WWII and Italy, and one of my favorites, inspired author Chris Bohjalian.
