Beneath a Scarlet Sky

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Mark Sullivan

Narrated By: Will Damron

Date: May 2017

Duration: 17 hours 45 minutes


Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, Beneath a Scarlet Sky is the triumphant, epic tale of one young man’s incredible courage and resilience during one of history’s darkest hours. Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. He’s a normal Italian teenager—obsessed with music, food, and girls—but 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, Pino’s parents force him to enlist as a German soldier—a 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 Hitler’s left hand in Italy, General Hans Leyers, one of the Third Reich’s 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.

    Wonderful glimpse into such a critical time in history. I could see the story in my mind. It was clear, painful, and joyous.

    This book could have been much more compelling if they had chosen a different narrator. He made the main character sound like a love sick teenager even when he was in danger.

  • Marilyn V.

    I absolutely loved this story and the telling of it. To know that Pino Lella is still alive when the book was published, made it even more special. Thank you Mark Sullivan for a beautifully told story and to Will Damron for incredible narration.

    What an awesome read. I hope to visit Italy again one day and will be looking at various places with a different set of eyes.
