The Italian Ballerina by Kristy Cambron // Review


A compelling read inspired by true events, about the courageous men and women who risked their lives to save Jews in Italy during WWII.

A multiple timeline read, it took me awhile to really get into it since it followed three main characters and then jumped forwards and back in the timelines of two of them, though I admit the mystery of what was going on did help pull me in. I loved how this book explored more of Italy's role in the war, as it is not as often represented as other places. 

A well written read, with well developed characters. I liked how Julia didn't want to rely on her family name to keep her out of danger, as well as her heart for others and determination. Court was probably one of my favorite characters for his story arc, and how he changes over the course of the story. 

Overall, this was a compelling and worthwhile read, with characters that slowly captured my heart and were hard to leave behind. A story of courage and hope resonating through time.  

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
