Editorial Reviews


"In Saving the Music, author Chip LoCoco writes of the efforts undertaken by common villagers, priests, and even a Pope to protect Jews from the Nazis. He vividly depicts the horrors faced by the Jews as they confront the Holocaust. Filled with real heroism and high drama, this book brings perspective and depth to its subject. It's an exciting read on an important topic, and I strongly recommend it."
-Ronald Rychlak, Author of Hitler, the War, and the Pope

"This is a well composed novel that captures key moments of the Holocaust as it relates to the Italian people. I highly recommend it."
-Professor Vincent Lapomarda, S.J., Author of The Jesuits and the Third Reich

"This is a well-researched novel and reflects the situation as it then existed, hopefully, never to return."
-Fr. Peter Gumpel, S.J., postulator of the cause of beautification for Pius XII

"Chip LoCoco's novel, Saving the Music, is a realistic fact-based story of pain, fear and true heroism. The premise is solidly grounded on documented facts of the actions of the Catholic Church under the Pontificate of Pope Pius XII down to priests and individual Catholics. Saving the Music is an exciting and engrossing read, which joins the list of wonderful truth-based books of late that is shedding light on the truth ending the worst character assassination of the 20th Century. Bravo."
-Gary L. Krupp, Author of Pope Pius XII and World War II- The Documented Truth
* * *
"Chip LoCoco's latest novel, Saving the Music, is an exceptionally written thought provoking historical fiction novel. This is an emotional charged, faced paced, gripping tale that portrays the horrors and suffering the people endured under the weight of the Third Reich.This book is a superb novel, that will transport you with its historical atmospheric imagery, and engaging musical elements. An absorbing riveting book, that will stay with you long after you close the book."
-Gwendalyn's Book Blog
"WOW, I was not prepared for how amazing this book was! From the absolutely gorgeous Preface to the bittersweet and heartwarming ending, I was completely captivated by the author's words. with exquisite writing and full of intrigue, danger, hope, and the power of fighting injustice, I highly recommend Saving the Music. I can't wait to go back and read the first book in the series!"
-Passages to the Past

"Saving the Music is a beautiful story of hope and fear during World War II... While Bellafortuna is fictional, the actions of the Italian people and Pope Pious XII were very real.  Reading about the Pope's difficult decisions that were made to save lives, all while receiving criticism for not speaking out against Hitler's atrocities was profound showing that true heroes do not act in order to receive praise, but will gladly risk themselves in order to do what is right."

"This was a completely captivating read, I loved very page.  It is packed with intrigue, danger, hope, and ultimately the fight for survival and the power of fighting injustice."
-Donna's Book Blog
"Saving the Music" by Vincent LoCoco is a courageous book. Courageous because it dives into a virulent and intensely personal historical argument about the role of the Catholic Church, and of Pope Pius XII, in the Holocaust of World War II." 
-Joel Epstein, Author of The Language of the Heart
