Just published to critical acclaim, the exciting story of a young boy of Jewish heritage and his disabled sister Ruby who try to evade the Nazi’s in Rome with the help of the “Pimpernel of the Vatican”. After his mother is arrested, Leo turns to Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty to save them. But he is no ordinary priest. Famous for his many disguises, he is the legendary organiser of the Rome Escape Line. Soon Leo is helping out with the secret network dedicated to saving the lives of escaped prisoners. Bust as the sinister Nazi leader Kappler closes in, can Leo stay out of his evil clutches?
“Another excellent addition to the Hands on History series and a stark
demonstration of where fascist ideology leads. Deeply researched, thrillingly exciting and a vivid window into an under-explored corner of World War 11 history.”
