A Winding Path to Umbria : The Silent Bridge of Time
Diana G Armstrong picks up her story as she and her husband continue to live several months of the year in part of a converted monastery in a remote village in Umbria, Italy. It is here that she uncovers the fact that her South African father, seventy years earlier, was here too. His World War II story intermingles with her 21st century one. The windows of her Umbrian home look out across the Calanchi Valley and onto the magnificent hill-top town of Civita. So long ago, her father was right here fighting with the Allied troops against the mighty German war machine. This book of historical fiction has a broad theater: the action moves from Italy, to the tip of Africa, to the wild plains of East Africa, to the Sahara and back to Italy. Time has a way of unveiling silences and truths long hidden, and time connects past with present.
