Dreams and Shadows
About the Book
Dreams and Shadows is a love story set against the background of World War II in Europe. True love has no boundaries; but when a world war is thrown into the romantic scenario, young lovers are confronted with insuperable war-related difficulties. Dreams are shattered and love is sacrificed for the sake of war and peace. Of most importance in this story are: German dictator Adolf Hitler of the Nazi Party, who established the Third Reich; and Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, who together pursued territorial expansion and proliferation of gold, expensive artifacts and the great masters painting, while spreading shadows of suffering, persecution, death and destruction across all of Europe.
