Publisher's Summary

The Liberation is set in Italy in 1945 as British and American troops attempt to bring order to the devastated country and Italy's population fights to survive.
Caterina Lombardi is desperate - her father is dead, her mother has disappeared, and her brother is being drawn toward danger. One morning, among the ruins of the bombed Naples streets, Caterina is forced to go to extreme lengths to protect her own life and in doing so forges a future in which she must clear her father's name. An Allied Army officer accuses him of treason, and Caterina discovers a plot against her family. Who can she trust, and who is the real enemy now? And will the secrets of the past be her downfall?
This epic novel is an unforgettably powerful story of love, loss, and the long shadow of war.

This book is filled with descriptions that fill your senses, giving you a taste of an Italy torn apart by fascism, war and its aftermath. Intertwined through a tale of greed and corruption is a love story that carries the listener along, impatient to hear what happens next, yet not wanting the story the end. With excellent narration by Imogen Church, I cannot recommend highly enough
