Catherine Bailey brings history alive with this true story of Fey von Hassell and how her family "sacrificed everything to resist the Nazis from within."
Fey—the wife of an Italian aristocrat and the daughter of Ulrich von Hassell, Hitler's Ambassador to Italy—lived peacefully with her two young sons on a grand Italian estate despite World War II raging around her. But after her husband and father joined the Resistance and were arrested, the family was torn apart. Pulling from first-hand family accounts along with records from concentration camps and surviving SS files, Bailey weaves an extraordinary historical thriller. (SB)
