This is the true story of Celestina, a courageous Italian woman.
Raised by a stern adopted mother who forced her to marry a man she
hardly knew, Celestina vowed to provide her future family with a
good Christian upbringing.After her husband left their growing
family and joined the army, she struggled to protect her children
from the ravages of World War II. When the allies landed in
Southern Italy and drove the German Army North into her village,
she found it too dangerous to remain in her home. She took her
children into the Apennine Mountains to hide, conquering her fear
and keeping her family safe. Her determination and bravery were
tested again and again as she and her children faced hunger and
untold dangers in the wilderness.How she survived and brought her
family together after the war is related to the reader in her own
words. She lived her life for her family with little consideration
for herself. Before passing away, she requested only one thing;
that her story be told.
