Product description

Review

"Gripping and important.... Moorehead delicately unravels and interweaves the personal stories of several key women in the Italian resistance... giving us a compelling narrative that vividly describes who these women were and what they did for their country.... A House in the Mountains is something of a manifesto against neutrality, and a showcase of the boundless power of female passion. The women of the resistance still have so much to teach us today."--AirMail

"Gripping... exhaustively researched... Moorehead artfully builds the tension as liberation approaches and partisans make a desperate last stand."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Important, meticulously researched... A House in the Mountains tells the untold story of the women of the Italian resistance.... Dramatic, heartbreaking and sweeping in scope, Ms. Moorehead's book charts the experiences of these women in the wider context of the war in Italy."--Wall Street Journal

"Italy often gets short shrift in popular English-language histories about World War II, with the fighting in the country shrugged off as a sideshow to the Battle of Britain and the invasion of France. Caroline Moorehead takes advantage of this relative gap in the literature with the moving A House in the Mountains."--The Oregonian

"The moving finale of a quartet of books on resistant to fascism.... Ms. Moorehead conveys the terror with understated power; she is equally good at conjuring the blurred morality of civil conflict."--The Economist

"Moorehead, in the final book of her "Resistance Quartet" series, tells the incredible story of the stafetta, women of the Italian resistance.... A fine history."--Library Journal, starred review

"Moorehead paints a wonderfully vivid and moving portrait of the women of the Italian Resistance.... [An] excellent book."--The Sunday Times

“In this deeply moving, beautifully told history, biographer and historian Moorehead shares the story of northern Italian resistance during WWII, focusing on the anti-Fascists of Turin... [A] superb and significant chronicle.”--Booklist, starred review

"A highly satisfying conclusion to the author's series. Excellent, well-presented evidence of the incalculable strengths and abilities of women to create and run a country."--Kirkus, starred review
