Review: The Liberation

The Liberation
The Liberation by Kate Furnivall

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A second world war story about the illegal smuggling and trade of Italian artefacts on the black market after the Americans and British ‘liberated’ Italy. The story is based in Sorrento, overlooking the beautiful Bay of Naples, with action taking place there, in Naples and the island of Capri. Katarina Lombardi is a daddy’s girl and her bubble is burst when an American army officer comes asking questions about her father’s restoration work on some finely crafted woodwork. The story follows her journey of revelation and discovery of an art underworld where the locals are trying to ‘save’ Italian artefacts from their invaders.

The story was well written and researched, but I didn’t find it all that gripping compared to other stories this author has written. Her Russian Concubine series remains my favourite books of hers.
