Italy has sued for peace with the Allies and 14-year-old Claudette Blum is learning Italian on the run. She and her father are among the thousands of Jewish refugees scrambling over the Alps to where they hope they will be safe at last. What they don't know is that tomorrow Italy will be under German occupation and about to become a vicious battleground between the Nazis, an Increasingly confident resistance and the advancing Allies...Set against this dramatic historical backdrop, Mary Doria Russell's new novel recalls - through the lives of a handful of brilliantly-drawn characters: a mercurial Italian resistance leader, a Catholic priest, an Italian rabbl's family, a disillusioned Wehrmacht doctor - the little known conspiracy of ordinary Italians who saved the lives of thousands of Jews during the final, desperate 20 months of the war. Full of drama, warmth, nobility and, for all the darkness, hope, A THREAD OF GRACE tells a story of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary times and accomplishing remarkable things. It is a breathtaking achievement.Hide synopsis

Excellent story, excellent writing. The characters walked right off the page they were so real. The story was exciting. Detailed history that played out as story. There was humor. It's one of the best books I've read in a long time. BUT be warned: it's not a light-hearted, everything turns out alright ...
Although this is a fascinating story about the Italian Resistance during WWII, it could have been much better if the author had not skipped around so much. Even though there was a list of characters in the front of the book, it was too hard to keep up with them. I found myself going back to the front ...
