BURYING THE PAST COMES AT A HIGH PRICE…
It’s 1922, a year after the Italian Fascists marched on Bozen. Nationalism in the Tyrolean Reschen Valley creates enemies out of old friends. Trusting no one, Katharina Steinhauser fiercely protects the identity of her daughter’s father from both her family and her community.
Meanwhile, Mussolini has wrested control from the monarchy, and momentum behind the Reschen Lake reservoir increases—a project that could wipe out her valley. Katharina writes to the man in charge, Angelo Grimani, begging him to reassess the project. But Angelo is hemmed in by a force that is tearing his family apart, steering him far from the Reschen Valley and that which binds him to Katharina. It’s exactly the opportunity the Fascists have been waiting for.
Following No Man’s Land, The Breach is the second part in the Reschen Valley series. If you enjoy gripping historical fiction that won’t let you go, you will love Chrystyna Lucyk-Berger’s vivid saga.
