Over the course of her stellar and prolific career, #1 bestselling author Lisa Scottoline has sold over 30 million copies of her page-turning thrillers and beloved humorous essays. Her novels have always explored themes of family, justice, and love and her masterpiece, ETERNAL (G.P. Putnam’s Sons; On Sale: March 23, 2021), is the culmination of a lifetime of work: a sweeping historical epic fueled by devastating true events. Named for Rome, the Eternal City, this moving novel lifted from the pages of history is the book that Scottoline was born to write. It will be forever etched in the hearts and minds of readers, as will the powerful truth it asserts—what war destroys, only love can heal

Unfolding over decades, ETERNAL is a saga of loyalty and loss, family and food, love and hate—all set in one of the world's most beautiful cities at its darkest moment. Scottoline has been researching the Italian Holocaust since her undergraduate days when she took an intimate year-long seminar at the University of Pennsylvania taught by the late Philip Roth called “The Literature of the Holocaust,” studying the work of Primo Levi, among others. Following that course, she knew that someday she’d write about these events. Her background as an Italian-American, a lawyer, and an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School fueled her interest in the subject. After she conducted decades of research, including numerous trips to Italy, ETERNAL was born.
