The Girl from Portofino (Girls from the Italian Resistance: Heart-breaking page-turners, based on actual events in Italy during World War 2) Kindle Edition
In 1970, Gina Bianchi returns to the beautiful Italian resort of Portofino to attend her father’s funeral, accompanied by her troubled twenty-four-year-old daughter, Hope.
There, Gina is beset by vivid memories of World War 2, a time when she joined the Resistance and her identical twin sister, Adele, worked for the Germans.
In her childhood bedroom, Gina reads Adele’s diary, left behind during the war. As Gina learns the shocking truth about her sister, she’s compelled to face the harsh realities of her own past.
Will she finally lay her ghosts to rest, or will they continue to haunt her and the family she loves?
For readers of Dinah Jefferies, Rhys Bowen and Angela Petch
