What side do you pick when the lines are blurred?

September, 1943. Tuscany, Italy.

In the hilltop town of Barga, everyone holds their breath. Even the bells fall silent. Everything Vittoria Guidi knows is at risk. German troops occupy the mountains around her home, as US Buffalo soldiers prepare to invade. Trapped, does she side with her Scots-Italian father or Fascist mother as her country - and future - is torn in two?

Frank Chapel, a young, black American soldier fighting for a country that refuses him the vote, is unlike anyone Vittoria has ever met. In the chaos, they find each other. But, as loyalties are tested, families fall apart...

Karen Campbell launches her new novel 'The Sound of the Hours' a novel about identity, conflict and love, set during World War Two in Barga – Italy’s most Scottish town.
