"This is the most difficult letter I have ever written because I have to tell you something very serious and perhaps you will say terrible and sad.
I ask you if possible not to judge me until we have been able to see each other and talk about it...".
In a letter to her parents, written in Rome in the summer of 1944, Maria Corelli tells of her life on the run in Italy during the Second World War.
As the Germans approach, she and her husband risk their lives to follow their friend, a Jewish musician, into hiding in the mountains...only to find their own relationship broken apart.
