Our Darkest Night by Jennifer Robson

This WWII novel is the latest book by Jennifer Robson. It takes place in rural Italy where a young Jewish woman is pretending to be the wife of a Catholic farmer in order to avoid deportation.

The story is told from the perspective of Antonina Mazin (Nina), who leaves the only home she has ever known to live with strangers and embrace the simple yet difficult life on the farm. Nico is the man who pretends to be her husband. He’s kind, strong and pretty much impossible not to fall in love with.

I’d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good WWII story. Being set in Italy, it had a unique perspective and gave such a rich portrayal of life as an everyday, hardworking family. The characters fought to make a difference in the fight against evil, even in their own small corner of the world.

⭐️ 8.5/10 ⭐️
