The Highland Games Ambassador by Jackie Roy sees Luca travel from his home in Italy to Orkney, where his father was interned as a prisoner of war in World War II, to fulfil his father’s dying wish.
Attracting media attention by financing Scotland’s first Highland Games Ambassador leads to secrets of his past being unravelled.
This is a touching story about family against the backdrop of the islands where so many Italian prisoners were held.
Although slightly overly sentimental at times, it is a fundamentally pleasant read.
