From sand and Ash

My review 
If you've read any of Amy Harmon's books, you have a fair idea of what you are in for but even then she still surprises in the best way possible. This book is the book equivalent of the movie Gone With The Wind-yes its that epic. The love story is beautiful and gut wrenching set in the back drop of World War II. Amy's descriptions put you squarely in every scene. I experienced every single emotion during the reading of this book and yes, there were tears. Angelo and Eva will capture your heart and cling to your soul. I found myself reading this book and needing absolute quiet. I didn't want the world intruding because this book commanded my full attention. For all you fact checkers, this book will warm the cockles of your heart with its unerring accuracy and with its depiction of actual people and events during that time. I can tell Amy poured her heart and soul into the telling of this love story and how lucky are we as readers that she took us on this journey.

Book Description 
Italy, 1943—Germany occupies much of the country, placing the Jewish population in grave danger during World War II.
As children, Eva Rosselli and Angelo Bianco were raised like family but divided by circumstance and religion. As the years go by, the two find themselves falling in love. But the church calls to Angelo and, despite his deep feelings for Eva, he chooses the priesthood.
Now, more than a decade later, Angelo is a Catholic priest and Eva is a woman with nowhere to turn. With the Gestapo closing in, Angelo hides Eva within the walls of a convent, where Eva discovers she is just one of many Jews being sheltered by the Catholic Church.
But Eva can’t quietly hide, waiting for deliverance, while Angelo risks everything to keep her safe. With the world at war and so many in need, Angelo and Eva face trial after trial, choice after agonizing choice, until fate and fortune finally collide, leaving them with the most difficult decision of all.
