Genny, named Gentian Alpina de Luise, was born in Naples, Italy. Since
her parents, Vera, an English woman, and Peppino de Luise, an Italian
civil engineer, were mountain climbers, she was given the name of an
Alpine flower.
At the outbreak of WWII, her life changed dramatically. In 1940, while on
vacation, her mother was interned in the Abruzzi mountains because of her
British nationality. The family found themselves trapped with her except for
their father who had to remain in Naples.
In October, 1945, she went to England to complete her education, returning
to Naples during the summers until 1953 where she stayed and studied languages. In 1955, she worked as a translator and
secretary. She spent the year of 1957 in Lusaka, Zambia, where her half-brother, a major in the British Army, was stationed.
She met Jon, U.S. Air Force, in 1957, married a year later, and in June 1960, moved to Washington. Their family grew to include
three sons. They moved to Oregon, Ohio, and finally DeKalb, Illinois, as her husband pursued his university career. While their
sons attended high school and college, she worked for the State of Illinois Social Services overseeing the welfare of families
with dependent children.

    I couldn't put it down.

    A well-told reminiscence of a small girl and her family surviving WWII and Nazi occupation in Italy.
