From the Back Cover
'A thoughtful and subtle historical romance with lots of brains and lots of heart.' Kate Forsyth
A passionate and poignant love story set on the beautiful Italian coast by the bestselling author of THE SOLDIER'S WIFE and THE WAR BRIDE.
Inspired by the life of the world's first woman war correspondent, Australia's Louise Mack, the most gorgeous love story yet by Pamela Hart.
1917, Italy. Australian journalist Rebecca Quinn is an unconventional woman. At the height of World War I, she has given up the safety of her Sydney home for the bloody battlefields of Europe, following her journalist husband to the frontline as a war correspondent in Italy.
Reporting the horrors of the Italian campaign, Rebecca finds herself thrown together with American-born Italian photographer Alessandro Panucci, and soon discovers another battleground every bit as dangerous and unpredictable: the human heart.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

During a time when women’s rights were still a foreign concept in Italy Rebecca Quinn faced it all and all without her husband (who left her with little to no notice to go off chasing a story). I felt for her and cringed while she faced judgement from the men who still believed that women should just go tend their houses, my heart cried out for Sandro who I loved right until the final pages, my anger at Jack for leaving Rebecca to become so incredibly independent in a world that rejected such independence didn’t sit well with me and his betrayal of her trust was just the last straw. Rebecca showed that despite the fear and rejection she faced that she could still hold it together when it counted and could be courageous in the face of dangers that most women today wouldn’t imagine leaving themselves in a position to experience.
An incredibly inspiring character and a story that melted my heart and gave me a new opinion of war themed books.
Many thanks to Hachette Publishers for the opportunity to read this Advanced Review Copy.
This book was inspired by the first female war correspondent, and what a story it is.
It is a sweeping, beautiful, emotional story that does wonderful justice for a part of history that for the most part has been swept under the carpet (I am not ashamed to admit that I did not know of Louise Mack and what she did).
Rebecca's story is one that I am sure could be told hundreds of times over - the loving and supportive wife following the husband wherever he goes, keeping quiet and doing as he expects.
Instead she is vocal on her career, her marriage, her expectations in life - and I loved her for it. This story shows how far we have come in the past century, but also highlights how far we still need to go.
The story is intriguing, enlightening, action packed and full of passion.
I really think that A Letter From Italy would make a wonderful movie or mini series - someone needs to get onto that pronto!
Now I am going to go back and read Ms Hart's other works, and look forward to what she brings us next.
