“1917, Italy. Australian journalist Rebecca Quinn is an unconventional woman. At the height of World War I, she has given up the safety of her Sydney home for the bloody battlefields of Europe, following her journalist husband to the frontline as a war correspondent in Italy.”
And so reads the promotion for Pamela Hart’s latest historical fiction, A Letter from Italy – an unlikely love story set exactly one hundred years ago and inspired by the life of the world’s first woman war correspondent, Australia’s Louise Mack.
We are lucky enough to have the phenomenally talented Pamela teaching creative writing courses here at AWC (as Pamela Freeman), and her research and attention to detail allow her historical novels to truly transport you to that time and place.
And for a pair of lucky winners this week, we have TWO copies of A Letter from Italy to give away. Just put on your journalist hat and tell us what the headline would be if YOU won this giveaway. Get creative, and our favourite responses will each win this book!
