Long Long Time Ago and Essentially True
Wydawnictwo: Arnold Publishers
But war arrives, cutting short their charming courtship and bringing with it terrible events.
Fifty years on, young Baba Yaga leaves her village to make a new life in Krakow. What she finds is not the city of her grandmother’s tales but a place struggling in the aftermath of communism’s fall, where opportunity seems reserved for the lucky few. Then tragedy strikes and the past reaches out an unexpected hand to her.
What Louis de Bernières did for Kefalonia, Brigid Pasulka does for Poland, weaving together the two strands of her story with a deftly magical touch into a witty, wise and heartbreaking love story that will enchant you to the very end.
