Book Description

Set in Italy during World War Two, TO FIND A MOUNTAIN tells the incredible story of a young woman named Benedetta Carlessimo.

When Benedetta's house is taken over by the German Command and her father is forced to fight for the Germans at the front lines, she is left alone to protect her family and survive the violent, battle scarred German soldiers living in her home.

Ultimately, Benedetta engages in a very real fight for her own survival, with the lives of those closest to her hanging in the balance.

TO FIND A MOUNTAIN is an unforgettable portrait of a war, a family, and a young woman who faces terrifying evil with incomparable bravery.

TO FIND A MOUNTAIN is based on true events.

"Amore is definitely one to watch."
-- Author Craig McDonald


Editorial Reviews

Review

"This engaging story is of courage, love, honor, and the atrocities of war. Thought provoking, as well as deeply emotional, Benedetta's story will remain with you long after you reach the end. Her bravery will amaze you. If you read only one historical fiction this year, make it To Find a Mountain. You'll be glad you did." 
-Bestselling author Carol Davis Luce

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart-felt. Captivating. A must read. . . November 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I strayed from my usual genre of mystery/suspense to read Dani Amore's newest novel, To Find a Mountain, because the product description of this story, based on real life, intrigued me. The story of Benedetta Carlessimo, a young woman--a mere girl, actually--is forced to care for and protect her siblings in a German occupied town in Italy during World War II. This engaging story is of courage, love, honor, and the atrocities of war. Thought provoking, as well as deeply emotional, Benedetta's story will remain with you long after you reach the end. Her bravery will amaze you. If you read only one historical fiction this year, make it To Find a Mountain. You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and fascinating story March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my Kindle at a ridiculously low price. I have not had good luck with many of Amazon's low-price books, but once I started this, I was intrigued all the way through.

I am a veteran of WWII, and was skeptical that an author of a younger generation could accurately depict what the war was like in Italy. Less than half way through, I was swept up in the story, and it felt as though I was right in the middle of the action.

Excellent character development and a riveting story. I will have to try one of her crime stories next.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow, a must read! February 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, what a story and its based on true events! It had me in tears a couple of times. Dani does a wonderful job of pulling you in to the story and you don't want to put the book down once you get there. Its based on an old lady's story about WWII when the German's invaded her town in Italy when she was a teen growing up. Dani makes you feel the horror, terror, anger and yes even love when the German's move in and take over. This story will stay in your thoughts for a long time afterwards.

What a pleasant surprise! The story was endearing, gripping, and very real. The author delved deep into the psyche of the poor Italians who were under the often cruel and rare kindnesses of the Germans who seized their village. It is a story of survival, of love. Beautifully edited and written, this is one book that I have to list as a favourite. The story fits with my own family's experiences in another small Italian village just south of this novel's setting. If you want a story with fascinating characters that doesn't wilt and tells it like it was, I strongly recommend this novel. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on more like this one! April 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dani Amore is a mystery writer. I rarely read mysteries but somehow stumbled on to this great work of Historical Fiction from her pen. This is a very good story of how war affects everyone, including civilians.
The time is WWII and the place is a small town in Italy that has come under the control of German forces. The main character, young Benedetta,leads you through her trials and tribulations in a manner that will draw tears, yet with an innocence that will bring a smile to your face. Every page is an exciting new conflict and how she deals with it.
I sincerely hope this gifted author branches out more and gives us her take on history again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unrealized potential July 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WOW. What a great premise. War time Italy, small village occupied by the Germans, young motherless girl coming of age while her dad flees and hides in the mountains with other male villagers. Deprivation, survival concerns for herself and younger siblings. And, finally, contact with the rebels, fear of discovery, and romance. It truly read like a narrative of an elderly grandmother, but not in a good way. Details are scant, the whole thing is pretty PG /PG-13, just like your Nonnie would tell it. There are hints of dark motives, there are passing mentions of savage behavior, but our heroine seems above it all somehow. Ultimately, she takes drastic action, but even in the telling, it seems diminished, IMO.

5.0 out of 5 stars To Find a Mountain June 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read several books by Dani Amore,each was written quite differently from any of the others.
"To Find a Mountain" will give an insight as to the perils of living in a small town on the edge of a battlefield during WW-II while having to house and feed the enemy in their homes. This is well written and believable.
