    1. Hi Gianfranco,
      I do! Such an extraordinary place with an enormously rich history.
      It was a privilege to write about it. I’d love to visit again,

  2. Thank you Pamela for answer to mee so soon.
    I am very pleased of that.
    I am italian from Brindisi and now I live in Miami, but each year I return to Brindisi. My sister lives there, many cousins and many many friends.
    I am engineer, bu I love the history and I am became an expert about Brindisi history. I am too a writer and I have wrote many books about Brindisi history. I write on Brindisi Magazine and on many internet pages. I write always about Brindisi.
    I only read a few pages on the Internet and read various reviews. In the next few days I will get a copy of the book that I immediately purchased and I will read it enthusiastically. After I read the book in full, I am sure that I will want to make you some comments on your vision of the Brindisi in 1917. I remember some stories of my parents and grandparents, but it intrigues me to know who inspired you to write about the toast of more than one hundred years ago?
    I will write an article on your very interesting book. I wish that my friends and all in Brindisi can to know about it.
    Have you thinked about a italian version?
    When you return to Brindisi, please let me Know. If I can’t to stay with you, I will contact you with some of mine friends, many of them very good writers.
    Thank you very much for your patience and your time.

    1. What inspired me was finding out that Australia had sent a fleet to Brindisi in 1917, to help with the blockade of German/Austrian submarines. And the main character is based on the first woman war correspondent, who was also Australian. Her name was Louisa Mack, and she went behind enemy lines in WWI to report on the invasion of Belgium, and later wrote a book about it.
      I would love to go back to Brindisi – I’ll let you know if I do!
