Description

The author grew up in Budapest and married prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. After Nazi occupation, her beloved Tibor was taken for slave-labour, and she needed all her considerable wit and courage to survive with her two-year-old son, Andris. Although this book is about grim times, the reader will find it anything but grim reading. It is an adventure story and a love story, peopled by a fascinating array of larger-than-life characters. But mostly, it is Teri who fascinates – funny, resilient, and affectionate – who has lived so fully and bravely.
