Reviews

"A necessary book. . . . Compelling and moving. . . . The literature of wartime France and the Holocaust is by now so vast as to confound the imagination, but when a book as good as this comes along, we are reminded that there is always room for something new." -- Washington Post on A Train in Winter

"Le Chambon has long been mythologized in France for the actions of its inhabitants.... But, as this riveting history shows, the story is more complex... If the picture Moorhead paints is messier than the myth, this only serves to enhance the heroism of the main actors." -- The New Yorker on Village of Secrets

"An intimate family portrait. . . . Moorehead has done us a great service in restoring the humanity of the Rosselli family. . . . It's the most complete portrait we have in English of this extraordinary family fighting--each in his or her own way--the most pernicious ideology of the last century." -- New York Times Book Review on A Bold and Dangerous Family

"Important, meticulously researched... A House in the Mountains tells the untold story of the women of the Italian resistance.... Dramatic, heartbreaking and sweeping in scope, Ms. Moorehead's book charts the experiences of these women in the wider context of the war in Italy." -- Wall Street Journal on A House in the Mountains
