Lisa Scottoline’s novels have always explored themes of family, justice, and love. Eternal is the culmination of a lifetime of work: a sweeping historical epic fueled by devastating true events. Named for Rome, the Eternal City, this moving novel lifted from the pages of history is the book that Scottoline was born to write. It will be forever etched in the hearts and minds of readers, as will the powerful truth it asserts—what war destroys, only love can heal.

“Based on true events, this is an addictive read. Scottoline’s passions, for Italy and the story, shine in her clear, descriptive sentences, which place you right there, watching history unfold. The book’s themes coincide with political and social events in the news today…Make a plate of fettuccine, pour a glass of red wine, and settle in with this captivating tale. You will cry tears of sadness and joy.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“Lisa Scottoline delivers fast-paced intrigue, but also an authentic, tender coming-of-age tale of three best friends navigating the complexities of Fascism, war, and romance.”—Lisa Wingate, author of Before We Were Yours and The Book Of Lost Friends

“In this immensely readable, big-hearted novel, Lisa Scottoline paints a vivid picture of life in WWII-era Rome before, during, and after the Fascist occupation. With characters who change and grow and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, Eternal is a blockbuster with cinematic intensity. I flew through the pages!”—Christina Baker Kline, author of Orphan Train and The Exiles

“Scottoline’s admirable foray into historical fiction…expertly brings historical events to life. Fans of WWII fiction will be drawn to this immersive, emotional novel.”—Publishers Weekly
