It has been some time since I've read a book that moved me in all the ways great writing should, but Pamela Alegretto nailed it. Complex in her method of story telling, blending historical facts and events with her well developed characters, even from page one I was hooked. If you love Italy and history, you will love this novel. All of your senses get involved: The sights, sounds, flavors and tactile narrative are beautiful and compelling, but it is the emotional connection with the characters that couldn't be denied. As a mature man, I'll only admit to having teared up half a dozen times; that is the level of immersion you'll discover. No spoilers here, but absolutely recommend. The author was also very thoughtful in the production of the novel: a bit larger font and cream colored pages, so very easy to read without tiring the eyes. Thank you Ms. Alegretto!

"Bridge of Sighs and Dreams" is a stirring and evocative portrait of Italy under the Fascists and the Nazi occupation. I've visited Italy several times and the elegant descriptions made me feel as if I had returned. This book left me breathless. It drew me in from the first page and didn't let go. It's a testament to the human spirit of survival.
