Besprechung

The characters are so convincing and the writing's so unshowily accomplished that it soon becomes something gripping. An admirable debut Daily Mail

Kurztext / Annotation

Am Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges ist Silvana nicht mehr die Frau, die Janusz einst hatte. Sie und ihr Sohn Aurek sind von Polen nach England gereist, um die Familie nach sechs Jahren wiederzuvereinen. Doch zwischen den beiden stehen zu viele Geheimnisse, die Grauen des Krieges, Janusz Seitensprung und das verheerende Ereignis, das Silvana ihm nie enthüllen wird. Poetisch erzählte Geschichte einer Familie, die wieder zu sich finden muss.

Langtext

22 Britannia Road by Amanda Hodgkinson is a heartbreaking and powerful novel about wartime secrets and the difficulties of adjusting to postwar life

It is 1946 and Silvana and eight-year-old Aurek board a ship that will take them from Poland to England. Silvana has not seen her husband Janusz in six years, but, they are assured, he has made them a home in Ipswich.

However, after living wild in the forests for years, carrying a terrible secret, all Silvana knows is that she and Aurek are survivors. Everything else is lost. While Janusz, a Polish soldier who has criss-crossed Europe during the war, hopes his family will help put his own dark past behind him.

But the war and the years apart will always haunt each of them unless they together confront what they were compelled to do to survive.

Powerful story-telling and entirely convincing in its evocation of post-war England.
