The Walls of Lucca Publisher's Summary

An award-winning tale of love, life, and forgiveness in World War I Italy.

Gold medal winner of the 2019 Readers' Favorite International Book Award Contest (Fiction - Inspirational).

When Franco, a weary Italian soldier who’s seen some of the worst of World War I, stumbles onto the Martellino vineyard, he’s looking for work - not love. But he finds that and much more with Isabella, the feisty young woman who works there.

Franco pours himself into the vineyard, trying to create a wine that will save it from financial ruin and rescue him from his dark memories of war. But it’s not easy when Mussolini's evil shadow continues to loom over all of Italy. It’s even harder when Susanna, the vineyard’s matriarch, invites that shadow to the vineyard with her involvement in Fascist politics - and one very sinister political operative.

Influenced by the teachings of A Course in MiraclesThe Walls of Lucca is historical fiction that shows listeners the power of love and forgiveness in the face of evil. Compelling, colorful characters populate an authentic, inspiring story of friendship, faith, love, and loss in a tumultuous time in European history.
