    The Madonna of the Mountains is a fierce, sharply observed and richly detailed account of a woman's fight to keep her family alive and thriving - at whatever cost. We meet Maria in 1923 as she awaits the arrival of her husband, chosen for her by her father and miraculously neither disfigured nor damaged by the previous war. Together they start a shop and build a business and a family - but the creep of fascism casts a dark shadow, and the horrors of war, political and practical, threaten their very survival.
