Easy-going American Arnie Smith and intense Hungarian Julia Kertesz become engaged on the very night the Iron Curtain falls in late 1989. He was a pilot in the Second World War. She lived through Communism until escape in 1956. The distant war and its aftermath come crashing back for both as Julia's hard-headed daughter Kati presses her mother to return to the homeland they fled. Julia will never believe it is safe to return as the repression returns full force. Arnie resents the daughter's hold on the woman he loves. And as Kati batters Julia with guilt about the tragically broken figure of her dead father, Arnie fights for Julia's love by facing up to mistakes with his own children. Hungarian heat and American cool change places in this sweeping novel of mature love set against a wrenching background of young love struggling under the gravest political abuse. The hero is the human ability to find humor in nightmare and truth beyond distortion. In a uniquely personal portrait of Eastern Europe through the continent's two great wars and their Communist aftermath, the culture of the young United States meets up with its parent for a clash of values only the will to engage transforms.
