"A fresh breeze of wit and glamour." --The Wall Street Journal

"Richly evocative of the charms and contradictions of Italy. Brava " --Chris Pavone, New York Times bestselling author

"A gorgeously entertaining story about a spirited woman during wartime that manages to be a clever caper at times but taut and profound at others"*

What if you found yourself in the middle of a war armed only with lipstick and a sense of humor? Abandoned as a child in Los Angeles in 1931, dust bowl refugee Sally Brady convinces a Hollywood movie star to adopt her, and grows up to be an effervescent gossip columnist secretly satirizing Europe's upper crust. By 1940 saucy Sally is conquering Fascist-era Rome with cheek and charm.

A good deed leaves Sally stranded in wartime Italy, brandishing a biting wit, a fake passport, and an elastic sense of right and wrong. To save her friends and find her way home through a land of besieged castles and villas, Sally must combat tragedy with comedy, tie up pompous bureaucrats in their own red tape, force the cruel to be kind, and unravel the mystery, weight, and meaning of family. Heir to Odysseus's wiles and Candide's optimism, Sally Brady is a heroine for the 21st century.
