Early One Morning

Two strangers save a child during WWII—a split-second decision that will have powerful reverberations for decades to come. Chiara Ravello is about to flee occupied Rome when she locks eyes with a woman being herded onto a truck with her family.

She is twenty-seven, with a sister who needs constant care, a hazardous journey ahead, and now a child, haunting her, in her charge.
