This August Audible released a new Historical Fiction Audiobook that has fans of stories set in Italy during the Second World War talking - or listening.
Our Forgotten Year, narrated by professional actor Jack Carmichael, tells a heartwarming tale of a small Italian town's courage and resilience during one of history's darkest times.
Told from the view point of a young Antonio Gallo, who is on the verge of manhood, as his life is shocked into the reality of the war when Gabriella Russo and her family are forcibly removed from their small Italian village because they are Jewish.
Set in the south of Italy, the residents of the small village of Tarsia, located in the province of Calabria, fear the approach of the Nazis as the war reaches a critical turning point. One from which everyone knows they can't turn back from.
A little bit about the narrator. . .
Jack Carmichael is a professionally trained actor based in Kent, England with a Masters degree from East 15 Acting School. His deep smooth voice helps weave the tale of Antonio and Gabriella in a way that makes you feel you are watching a play unfold, transporting the listener to Italy, 1942.
I am so excited to share this special recording of a special book. Whichever format you chose, I hope you enjoy the story.
