Summary
  • Hiding from the Nazis in the guise of a Christian farmer's wife, a Jewish woman is met with suspicion by a Nazi official who harbors a vendetta against the former seminary student posing as her husband
  • Autumn, 1943. Life is becoming increasingly perilous for Italian Jews like the Mazin family. Antonina Mazin has but one hope to survive: to leave Venice and her family, to hide in the countryside with a man she has only just met. Nico Gerardi was studying for the priesthood until circumstances forced him to leave the seminary to run his family's farm. He could not stand by when the fascists and Nazis began taking innocent lives. Nina will pose as his new bride-- and they must convince prying eyes they are happily married and in love. Farm life is not easy for a city girl, and Nico's neighbors are wary of her. Their distrust is shared by a local Nazi official with a vendetta against Nico. -- adapted from jacket
