“Fascinating read of little-known Jewish American patriots through WWI.” “The settings - the seaside villa in Tuscany, the drawing rooms of New York, the artists enclaves in Paris, the road trips in fabulous convertibles through the lush Italian countryside...Conte was a master at lulling the reader under the Tuscan sun or careening over the country roads at - horrors, sixty miles and hour!

Like the glamourati of that era, the sex simmered beneath the surface, no graphic details but scenes of romance with spaces between paragraphs nicely suggestive. So, no steamy pages, just a whole lot of innuendo. I found it far more fun than today's bodice-rippers.

Truly a set piece, lots of well-drawn characters, intricate plot, twists, surprises and a satisfying finale.”
