Alessandra has always wanted more than life offered her.

Growing up in a crowded apartment block in 1930s Rome, she watches as her mother’s dreams of becoming a concert pianist are stifled by an unsatisfying marriage. When her father’s traditional family try to make Alessandra marry at a young age, she rebels against the future they imagine for her.

Soon she falls passionately in love with Francesco, an anti-fascist professor, and a new world seems to open up. Working for the underground resistance, she tastes the independence that she has yearned for. But what will it take for her to break free from society’s expectations, and live on her own terms?

Drawing on Alba de Céspedes’s own experiences in Italy’s wartime uprising, Her Side of the Story is a feminist chronicle of fierce and unforgettable power.
