Chiara Ravello is about to flee occupied Rome when she locks eyes with a woman being herded on to a truck with her family. Claiming the woman's son, Daniele, as her own nephew, Chiara demands his return; only as the trucks depart does she realize what she has done. She is twenty-seven, with a sister who needs her constant care, a hazardous journey ahead, and now a child in her charge. Several decades later, Chiara lives alone in Rome, a self-contained woman working as a translator. Always in the background is the shadow of Daniele, whose absence and the havoc he wrought on Chiara's world haunt her. Then she receives a phone call from a teenager claiming to be his daughter, and Chiara knows it is time to face up to the past.

Gripping character development. Slow story, but will hold your attention. Full of loss, but uplifting ending.

Baily's use of language is superb. This novel about a Roman woman, Chiara, who saves the life of a Jewish boy headed to a death camp is excellent. It moves back and forth in time from the 40's to the 70's revealing many secrets about Chiara and Daniele's lives.
