Can the dream of freedom overcome fear and oppression? Friendships, marriages and loyalties are tested to the limit in this novel which spans Prague’s tumultuous twentieth century .

From World War I and the heady days of liberty which follow, to the Nazi occupation of World War II and afterwards Communist dictatorship, life threatening risks must be taken and friends and families are torn apart by the choices they make. Conflict and hardship will bring out both the good and the bad, and in unexpected ways.
