The Italian Chapel Summary

The Italian Chapel by Philip Paris

"The Italian Chapel" is a story of forbidden love...lifelong friendships torn apart...despair and hope, set against the backdrop of the creation of a symbol that is known around the world. Amidst strikes, conflicts and untold hardships, the Italian prisoners of war sent to a tiny Orkney island during WW2 create a monument to the human spirit's ability to lift itself above great adversity. One artist falls in love with a local Orkney woman and leaves a token of his love in the chapel...it is still there today and until The Italian Chapel, no-one has ever known its true meaning.

About Philip Paris

For the last 25 years Philip Paris has worked in journalism and public relations. His quest to tell the story behind the Italian Chapel began in 2005 when he went to Orkney on honeymoon. During more than three years of research he has tracked down ex-POWs from the WW2 Orkney camps as well as descendants of the key artists involved in building the chapel and those involved in running Camp 60. He lives with his wife in the Highlands. The Italian Chapel is his first novel.
