Publisher's Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of Last Train to Istanbul.
Ever since Nimeta was a child, she’d done exactly what was expected of her. She married a responsible man she met in college, had two children, and established a busy journalism career - and there was no reason to think anything would ever change. Then one day, while reporting on a protest in Zagreb, Nimeta’s life takes a dramatic turn. Not only does she lay eyes on a handsome reporter who captures her heart, but a little-known politician by the name of Slobodan Milosevic delivers a speech fanning the flames of long-dormant Serbian nationalism. As her love affair intensifies and political tensions build, Nimeta is forced to reconsider everything she thought she knew about family, love, loyalty, and humanity itself. Navigating both the new landscape of her heart and that of her beloved war-torn city, Nimeta must draw upon her deepest reserves of inner strength to keep her family safe. A moving drama set against the backdrop of the crisis that rocked the Balkans in the 1990s, Rose of Sarajevo reveals the tremendous lengths people will go to in the name of love.

This book will probably become a classic novel, read worldwide; it certain deserves to be.

A wonderful painful, but uplifting novel which weaves the tragic brutal awfulness of war with the love, passion and tenderness of individual lives. Beautifully written with such graphic skill that as a listener I pictured the struggles and events as if I was there. Well read by someone who seemed to love the book, this audio book is unforgettable! It is an informative and tender story vividly unfolding a terrible history with compassion and clarity.
