So you’re tired of my rants about PLDT DSL. So am I. If anything good came out of my very limited time online for the past so many days, it’s the fact that I was able to catch up on my reading. I finally found the time to read Anthony Capella’s The Wedding Officer sent by Random House Publishing. Random House sends me books from time to time, books I can review if I wish. Some of them I have; others, I didn’t. This is not a review of The Wedding Officer but just a thumbs up I guess having enjoyed it immensely.
The setting is Italy during World War II. A British officer named James Gould gets assigned to Naples to help discourage marriages between British soldiers and Italian girls. He falls in love with the Allied Forces’ Italian cook, the young widow Livia, and finds himself in a quandary because he is doing exactly what he was supposed to prevent.
