The Book of Fathers by Miklos Vamos

The Book of Fathers

Miklos Vamos

Hungary. The history of a star-cross'd family, if ever their was one, from the end of the seventeenth century to the present. A story of survival despite war, invasion, rebellion, genocide, tyranny. Proof that the human spirit can survive despite everything thrown at it, and our endless capacity for getting things wrong.

Extract
