This is a love story about Stefo and Lena from the Macedonian village of Trna in Aegean Macedonia. But it could be anyone’s story who lived through those times. Married during the early days of WWII, Stefo is conscripted into the Greek army, and later becomes a partisan. This is a family torn apart through no fault of their own, and how they manage to put the pieces together. It is a powerful oral history about war, migration, Macedonian village life in the early mid 20thC and the importance of family. It is well told and easy to read.
