I enjoyed the descriptive narrative of Poland's way of life, apples fell to the ground added their ripe scent to the air. Always noises of someone working on their home or farm, hammering or sawing or mowing or running power tools, or rounded older women passed on squeaky bicycles.
Cordelia a life, a complacent life despite her physical disability she managed to be the head of the household of her family. Cordelia accidentally meets a man when her car gets in a situation where help is needed. Now Cordelia's life will forever change the dynamics of it. Intrigue, excitement and fascination enters, along the way, "love." Zaremba swaggered in Cordelia's life bringing about the hunt, the cynicism of politics and the way governments intricate workings. What I notice about his story the author wrote a book that could easily be two separate stories, two books, a sequel. Sometimes Zaremba could sound like an arrogant man but self assured is more like it. For instinct I found this statement quite funny, "I'm a self-made man. Naturally I'm pleased with my own creation." How can you not like the characters of Zaremba and Cordelia. This story I felt I had seen replays of it on recent news report, international espionage. The place of origin, Poland, the beginning with secretive CIA operations and tactics of the Law and Justice Party. Zaremba surely brought about government wheeling and dealings into Cordelia's life now she becomes the savior to his existence. So much fascination of intrigue and detrimental elements of surprises. Two different stories could be formed here with the relationship Cordelia and Zaremba and the other the espionage, political side. A story that will entertain you mind and keep you there until the end. Great writing, exquisite writing! Thank you. I won this book on BookLikes. Thank you, Darlene Cruz
