This book was published 11 years ago and it still resonates with me.  Beautiful prose, an exotic setting, deeply felt characters and a saga-like story come together to create a story you will sink into.

Apparently I wasn't paying attention to the news in the 80's and was unaware on the siege of Sarajevo.  This book educated and enlightened me  Parts that I was sure were creative additions to the events were, in fact, true.  A supberb historical/realistic fiction.
