A novel of family history and geo-political saga
This chronicle begins when a French family escapes the guillotines of Paris to Prague, Bohemia in the 1800s. The story transforms into the struggle of the family's French/Czech descendant who immigrates to America and fights in the Battle of Shiloh. The story returns to the Prague Spring in 1968, a phenomenon that occurred to overthrow oppressive rule, but was followed by a new reign of terror. Finally, the book takes the reader to the streets of Tehran, Iran, where once again, revolt against a monarchy results in mayhem and violence. The book is an emotional, personal study of survival despite persecution under tyranny and, the author hopes, a cautionary tale for the days we live in.
