Publisher's Summary

Naive and already war-weary, James Gouding takes up a position in Naples in 1943. What he doesn't anticipate is that this involves a limited menu of fried Spam fritters and interrogating the would-be Italian fiancees of members of the armed forces.

James's chance at true heroism arrives when a German tank is sighted and he is caught in its path. However, it is the imperious and dogmatic Livia who opens the hatch and yells at him to stop being such an idiot.

Livia gladly becomes cook, translator and general factotum to James. The two begin to fall in love, but the eruption of Vesuvius triggers a chain of explosive events that will force the two to flee behind enemy lines and will alter their lives immeasurably.

Gripping story!

After the first chapter, I was disappointed and thought it would be a little predictable but as I read on, I found the story gripping and very well written. I particularly loved the description of Livia cooking the food, some humorous notes (the colour of the Italian flag in all the food she cooked). The epilogue was a little rushed in my opinion. Overall a really good book.

Took a while to get going, but then was great

I've listened to all of Anthony Capella's books here on audible, and I found this one to be the least engaging of them all. I had to restart it three times before I got into it, which has never before happened with one of his books. But I got through it, and it got more engaging once the initial hurdle was passed.
