Publisher's summary

An Epic World War II Love Story!

When bon vivant Italian opera star turned pilot Pietro is shot down during WWII, he nearly loses his life. Worse, he's lost his passion for music and is close to losing his sanity in a soul-crushing prisoner-of-war camp in South Africa when he meets Iris. He has a vision of love worth dying for - worth living for - and realizes he must find his voice if he ever hopes to find her again.

Iris' dreams are at stake when she meets Pietro, her enemy. All she wants is for her brother to come home alive from the war and to fulfill her destiny as a costume designer in Hollywood. But this spirited redhead's life turns upside down as her eyes meet Pietro's through the cage of his prison. The world may be at stake, but so is her heart.

Their secretive and daring courtship raises the suspicions of the bully who runs the camp, a scarred and damaged tyrant who once dated Iris. Consummating the couple's almost mystical connection will mean crossing the barbed wire, risking the deadly charge of treason, and confronting their worst fears.

Inspired by a true story, War Serenade is compelling, heart-wrenching, sometimes funny, and always dramatic as it celebrates the endurance of the human spirit, the evolution of rich friendships, and love's triumph against impossible odds.

"A love story for the ages," (Roxanne St. Claire, NY Times best-selling author.)

"I felt I'd just lost my best friends once I finished this incredible story...reminded me of The Thorn Birds, fast paced, moving. Author Jill Wallace writes prose as poetry..." (Journalist Debra Shannon)

The power of love.

A wonderful story of love and endurance. It was easy to visualize each character I know what they were feeling. Couldn’t ask for a better ending.

Fabulous

It took me on a journey. A beautifully written love story. I was Totally engaged.
I was able to walk along side Iris and feel her love for her beloved Pietro. Ms. Wallace delivered an amazing story. My only regret is that it ended. Oh but what a beautiful ending. Quite a storyteller. I cannot wait for her next book. Thank you so much Ms. Jill Wallace for taking me on a wonderful adventure. It simply brought me happiness. Ivette Griffith

Fantastic!

This was a great surprise. I had no idea how deep and many layered the story would be. It’s definitely worth listening to — a love story beyond compare.
