A great read!

This book vividly brings to life what things were like in the build-up to WWII in Hungary. It really gives you a sense of what the life experience was for people at that time, and the writing really enables you to see it firsthand through the eyes of the characters. I found the situations they faced post-war particularly interesting -- there was much more chaos afterward than I had ever before appreciated. It's a story of courage, bravery, and ingenuity as much as about love, and it's definitely a page-turner.

Fascinating story

This is an well written-emotionally charged love story. Anyone who has fallen in love and been separated from his/her love will know the joy and the longing experienced over a lifetime expressed in this book. It's a great story that draws you in on page one and keeps you turning pages 'til the end.

A tender love story

This is an amazing story - weaving history with interesting characters, set in the cultural microcosm of a small town near the Carpathian mountains. Two families' lives are intertwined in the events leading up to World War II -all based on a true story. It was interesting to read about the challenges the villagers had to face, as changing boundaries and new governments disrupted their lives. It is a fascinating read with great characters; a young man devoted to a woman he knew was his true love. Very well done!
