ARC received from Hachette Australia for an honest reviewA Letter From Italy was the perfect way for me to pop my Pamela Hart cherry This book was inspired by the first female war correspondent, and what a story it is.It is a sweeping, beautiful, emotional story that does wonderful justice for a part of history that for the most part has been swept under the carpet I am not ashamed to admit that I did not know of Louise Mack and what she did.Rebecca s story is one that I am sure could be told hu [...]

    19. Rebecca Quinn has left Australia to travel with her journalist husband to first world War Italy When he disappears on his own adventure she us left to file her own stories.I really wanted to love this story, but it all felt a bit flat for me I didn t really like the main charactersite, nor could I picture the Italian scenery as I would have liked Such a shame as it had all the elements of a good story, but I never quite believed it.

    20. I suspect I would have enjoyed this if I had read the book, rather than listen to the audiobook Unfortunately the library platform for the audio does not allow for change of speed and while the narrator was excellent, I found listening to this one at normal speed quite tedious.
