Beneath a scarlet sky by mark sullivan

biographical HISTORICAL FICTION, 523 PP

Although Beneath A Scarlet Sky is another WWII historical, fiction which has been one of the hottest topics for recent publishing, I devoured the story of Pino Lella, a 17-year old boy who becomes a man in Milan at the height of the War. This is not a coming of age story. This is the remarkable true story of love, loss, patriotism, espionage, faith, sympathy and familial ties. Knowing the story and my husband’s interests in books, I chose the audio version of Scarlet Sky for our drive to and from Florida. Fair warning – it is 523 pages. We needed the entire drive down and back to finish it. Jim was equally amazed with the story, and we’ve already sent a copy to his brother for his birthday.

Check out my other top picks for Historical Fiction, Literary Fiction, Mystery/Thriller, Non-Fiction and Simple Pleasure Reading.

That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.
