In this story of love and loss, Tibor Schroeder, a Christian and reservist in the Hungarian forces allied with Nazi Germany, and Hedy Weisz, a young Jewish woman meet and fall in love during the Second World War - a time when romantic liaisons and marriage between Christians and Jews were not only frowned upon but against the law.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Outcasts A little confusing at times but overall not a bad read

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "A superb and sensitive book!" Just finished reading Susan Papp's book... it was awesomely riveting and emotionally elevating in all sense of the word. The "love-story" between two individuals-- so far apart-- caused by social, religious and political laws --yet, interwoven through real historic time in a caring sensitive manner is the real quality of this book. Amazingly beautiful!
