Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Paul Bellantoni

Fiction • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Paul Bellantoni impeccably presents a small village and its superstitious inhabitants in this look at WWII from an Italian perspective. Listeners join Ezio, who's dedicated to his job as a policeman despite needing a cane. Bellantoni conveys life as Mussolini's Fascists and the Nazis terrify everyone. When Ezio arrests a longtime Jewish resident, his conscience requires him to help the man and his daughter, Nora, who is disguised as a nun. When the Resistance commences, Ezio overcomes his inner demons and also falls in love with Nora. Delightful snippets of Ezio's father's aria performances while cooking and much needed humor showcase Bellantoni at his finest. Audio lets listeners savor rich Italian and guttural German accents in this humane story, based on true events. S.G.B.
