An idyllic childhood in a sleepy hillside village in southern Italy is abruptly cut short when Mussolini’s alliance with Hitler backfires catastrophically, bringing war and destruction to the Italian people. The consequences for little Ida are tumultuous and life changing. In this heartfelt, moving and often funny book we join Ida on her journey from war ravaged Italy to the smoggy and forbidding streets of the 1950s London. We share her heartaches and her joy as she struggles to build a new life in a country where the language and the culture are a mystery and each day presents a new challenge. This is Ida’s first book and her story, told in her own inimitable style, is a tribute to her irrepressible personality and determination to succeed against the odds. It will strike a chord with all those who believe in the triumph of hope over adversity. The profits will be donated to Cancer Research UK and NSPCC.
