Very interesting and well researched book. It is based on the experiences of four female friends who were active in the resistance in and around Turin. The book has a detailed narrative of events in that area from Mussolini's fall in 1943 to the post war period. The book ends sadly. Some familiar writers who were based in Turin, Primo Levi, Natalia Ginzburg, Oriana Fallaci, are mentioned.
