Italian version of A Greater Love published

Splendid Books has just received its copies of a brand-new Italian edition of Olga Watkins and James Gillespie’s acclaimed book A Greater Love.

The true story of Olga’s incredible journey into the heart of the Third Reich to find the man she loves has been titled Ovunque Sarai in Italian which means Wherever You Are.

“So many people have been moved by Olga’s remarkable story and we are delighted that our colleagues at Piemme in Italy have now published their own version,” says Steve Clark, Publishing Director at Splendid Books.

Ovunque Sarai was published in hardback in Italy last month and is available to UK buyers from Amazon.co.uk. The English version is available here

Piemme bought the rights to publish A Greater Love in Italy from Splendid Books in a deal brokered by Cathy Miller of The Cathy Miller Foreign Rights Agency.

Reviews for the book have been universally positive. The Daily Mail said: “It’s a book that deserves to be read, a testament to human guts and resilience, and a grim reminder of the whimsical cruelty of fate.”
