Eternal by LisScottoline
 
Elisabetta, Marco, and Sandro grow up as the best of friends despite their differences. Elisabetta dreams of becoming a novelist. Marco the brash and athletic son in a family of professional cyclists; and Sandro a Jewish mathematics prodigy, the son of a lawyer and a doctor.
 
As anti-Semitism takes legal root and World War II erupts, the threesome realizes that Mussolini was only the beginning. The Nazis invade Rome, and with their occupation come new atrocities against the city's Jews, culminating in a final, horrific betrayal. Against this backdrop, the intertwined fates of Elisabetta, Marco, Sandro, and their families will be decided. 
 
Unfolding over decades, Eternal is a tale of loyalty and loss, family and food, love and war--all set in one of the world's most beautiful cities at its darkest moment.
