Publisher's Summary

If war is madness, how can love survive?
Growing up in the borderlands between Croatia and Serbia, Miro's blissful childhood is shattered when his best friend is horribly wounded by a land mine, a legacy of conflicts gone by.
Moving to the Dalmatian coast, where his parents start a small hotel, he thinks he has left this all behind - he falls in love and starts a family with his childhood sweetheart, Dina. But as his country descends into another devastating war, one split-second decision that causes his daughter's death destroys the life he has managed to build.
Rejected by his grieving wife, Miro takes a job as a cameraman with a news channel and is plunged into the hard-bitten, black-humoured world of the international war reporters. He even finds some solace in an affair with Marian, a BBC journalist, but as he feels the war changing him and his loved ones beyond all recognition, he must struggle to keep his relationship, and his soul, intact.
