THE AMBER HEART
The Amber Heart is an epic love story set in the troubled Eastern Borderlands of 19th century Poland. Tackling adult themes with sensitivity, this is a vivid, dramatic and intensely romantic story of obsessive love and loyalty, of tragedy and triumph, set against the backdrop of a turbulent time and place.
This is also the story of the beautiful pancake yellow house of Lisko, Maryanna’s beloved childhood home, and the way in which the lives of the characters are disrupted by the political turmoil of the times.
It has been described as a 'Polish Gone With The Wind', but if you loved the film version of Dr Zhivago, this might be the novel for you. It is very loosely based on a series of extraordinary facts which came to light when the author was researching her own remote family history.
