Secondhand. Good condition. Minor wear to book corners and edges. Stiffness to left tail corner back cover and end pages caused by moisture exposure. Pages are all separated with none stuck together.
Rosa, a young woman, from small- country-town Australia, longing for mystery, adventure and the exotic, is fatally attracted to a romantic image of Eastern Europe, arriving alone in Dubrovnik in the months before the implosion of the old Yugoslavia.
In this dreamy and delicate tale about longing and belonging, exile, love and war, Donna Mazza brings us an updated variation on the theme of the innocent abroad - the Romantic idealist searching for a Romantic hero. (publisher blurb)
