Beneath A Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan

My rating: 5.0

Pino Lella is a normal Italian teenager, obsessed with music, food and girls when WWII breaks out. This is based on the amazing true story of Pino Lella who is still alive and well today living in Lesa Italy.

If you like historical fiction or if you loved All The Light You Cannot See, The Nightingale or Unbroken or are just a fan of great writing, then you need to read this book.  I thoroughly enjoyed and have already gotten several friends to read it and they feel the same way. I am sure this will be made into a movie. Definitely makes my 'Best of 2017' list! 


  1. I need to check this out, I loved The Nightingale and All the Light You Cannot See. This is a title I missed somehow. So glad you have this blog, keeps me in the loop with all the best books.

    1. I think you will love it Jeana but let me know your thoughts. Always interesting when we are so aligned to hear if we disagree on some and why xoxo
