Soon to be a major motion picture from Pascal Pictures, starring Tom Holland.
Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, the #1 Amazon Charts bestseller Beneath a Scarlet Sky is the triumphant, epic tale of one young manâs incredible courage and resilience during one of historyâs darkest hours.
Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. Heâs a normal Italian teenagerâobsessed with music, food, and girlsâbut his days of innocence are numbered. When his family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, and falls for Anna, a beautiful widow six years his senior.
In an attempt to protect him, Pinoâs parents force him to enlist as a German soldierâa move they think will keep him out of combat. But after Pino is injured, he is recruited at the tender age of eighteen to become the personal driver for Adolf Hitlerâs left hand in Italy, General Hans Leyers, one of the Third Reichâs most mysterious and powerful commanders.
Now, with the opportunity to spy for the Allies inside the German High Command, Pino endures the horrors of the war and the Nazi occupation by fighting in secret, his courage bolstered by his love for Anna and for the life he dreams they will one day share.
Fans of All the Light We Cannot See, The Nightingale, and Unbroken will enjoy this riveting saga of history, suspense, and love.
In The Gifts of Imperfection, BrenÃ© Brown, a leading expert on shame, authenticity, and belonging, shares ten guideposts on the power of Wholehearted livingâa way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.
Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, "What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?"
In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, "No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough," and to go to bed at night thinking, "Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging."
"This important book is about the lifelong journey from 'What will people think?' to 'I am enough.' Brown's unique ability to blend original research with honest storytelling makes reading The Gifts of Imperfection like having a long, uplifting conversation with a very wise friend who offers compassion, wisdom, and great advice."âHarriet Lerner, New York Times best-selling author of The Dance of Anger and The Dance of Connection
"BrenÃ© Brown courageously tackles the dark emotions that get in the way of leading a fuller life; read this book and let some of that courage rub off on you."âDaniel H. Pink, New York Times best-selling author of A Whole New Mind
"Courage, compassion, and connection: Through BrenÃ©'s research, observations, and guidance, these three little words can open the door to amazing change in your life.'"âAli Edwards, author of Life Artist
