A Partisan’s Daughter by Louis de Bernieres

In the course of his job as a medical rep, Chris is captivated by a young woman on a street corner. Clumsily, he engages her in conversation, and he secures an invitation to return one day for a coffee.

His visits become more frequent and Roza starts to tell him the story of her life, drawing him increasingly into her world - from her childhood as a daughter of one of Tito's partisans, through her journey to England and on to her more recent colourful and dangerous past in London.

This is another beautifully wrought love story from the author of the bestselling Birds Without Wings and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
