What is your favorite book of all time? Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark. T. Sullivan - I love historical fiction--especially WWII. Why do I love this book so much? Well, Pino Lella is a forgotten hero--not one that you study in the history books. However, he represents the many average people that were needed to win this war. Pino Lella shows that empathy, love for others, and kindness still survived amidst tyranny and oppression. Read it!
