To bury a secret, you must begin lying. What happens when those lies spin out of control? In the spring of 1920, Katharina Thaler finds a man stabbed and left to die on her alpine mountain. A war medal leaves her no doubt that he is Italian. With the Tyroleans fighting to prevent the annexation of their province to Italy, Katharina knows that, by saving his life, she will bring unrest to her valley. When she discovers why he is there in the first place, she will be hemmed in by the New World Order; a force, which splits families apart, steals one's identity, and cultivates secrets. Secrets, which cost too much.

The perfect way to end the day, at the start of Katarina's journey. Looking forward to chapter 2.

To be ultra critical... You squeeze a trigger, you don't pull it. Maybe this is the intent to show that she's not keen on the talents of shooting?

Wow, your writing is excellent. I already have a sense of the characters you've introduced so far, as well as their immediate environment. There's also the great hook of who's this Italian and who wanted to kill him, which definitely makes me want to read more.
