An Amazon bestseller in Eastern European literature and women’s fiction. When her career as a pianist fails due to a terrible weight problem, Hania travels to Warsaw with hopes of a warm welcome from her relatives. Instead, she finds herself saddled with their appalling children. Her situation is improved and then complicated when a neighbor—the very correct, very austere descendant of an old Polish family—asks her to proofread an amateur history project. Typing pages of the past, rediscovering her native city, and playing the piano all contribute to taking Hania’s mind off her problems, but can’t change her awareness that the children need help and that her growing attachment to her employer will only cause her pain. This book contains a history of Poland in a nutshell and is about seeing beyond the conventions. It has been described in reviews as “heartwarming,” “thought-provoking,” and “original.” $.99 or FREE with Kindle Unlimited.
