From the inside flap: The hero of Heart of Stone is an unheroic, homeless young man named Davide who is caught between the Germans and the Allies as the fighting in Italy reached a climax. With a small band of other frightened Italian civilians he makes his way to the monastery at Cassino, which proves an improbable shelter. It is there, however, during the savage bombardment, that in trying to protect the fragile Patrizia he first comes to know the meaning of love. But then they are both wounded and taken to different hospitals, and when Davide recovers, he is alone again. SKU: 0107110113 Visit my eCRATER Store for other great books and save on shipping!
