From the best-selling author of Winter Journey, Mosaic and The Voyage of Their Life - all published in audio by Bolinda.
It is Warsaw, 1939, and Elzunia is an indulged teenager who longs for a heroic life filled with romance. But the outbreak of war shatters all her dreams. As bombs fall, she meets Adam, a taciturn airman whose fate becomes entwined with hers. In despair over the occupation, Adam joins the Polish resistance, then flies bombers for the RAF.
Forced into the Warsaw Ghetto, Elzunia learns that even children must create their own rules to survive. When the Ghetto defies the invaders, and later the entire city of Warsaw rises up, Elzunia finds strength in ways she never imagined. Nocturne is a powerful and inspiring testament to resilience and courage in the face of cruelty and betrayal.
Nocturne, narrated with refined British class by Deidre Rubenstein, is the poignant war-torn romance, set in Warsaw in 1939, that follows the passionate relationship of Elzunia, a starry-eyed teenager who dreams of an idealized life, and Adam, a brooding young pilot who makes the heroic decision to join the Polish resistance at the onset of war - but at what great personal cost?
This gripping story, whose plot perhaps gives a nod or two to Hemingway’s For Whom The Bell Tolls, is about the delicate balance between love and passion with duty and honor.
