In a calm, steady voice, Derek Perkins narrates A House in the Mountains, the history of Italian resistance during WWII with a focus on 1944 and 1945. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss Caroline Moorehead’s concluding history in her Resistance Quartet, examining women’s role in the French and Italian Resistance. Perkins slips smoothly into the role of narrator of this lesser-known chapter of WWII, with four women from northwest Italy fighting to overthrow the fascist regime in Turin and the surrounding mountains.
