In Occupied Naples in 1944‚ twenty–two year old James Gould is the “Wedding Officer”. He's responsible for discouraging Allied soldiers from marrying local women. He takes his job seriously and is very good at it — until the locals conspire for him to hire a local girl as his cook. Livia Pertini swallows her rancor for the Allies she blames for killing her husband‚ and goes to work to support her family in Vesuvius. She's not only a remarkable cook‚ she's also very beautiful. And slowly‚ under her influence‚ James stops worrying so much about war brides‚ black marketeering‚ and mafia corruption to concentrate on Livia. Has his heart become more important than his orders? The eruption of Vesuvius while Livia is with her family triggers a dizzying series of events that will answer that question once and for all . . .show more
