April 1939. Warsaw, Poland. The houses on Podwale Street look so much alike. Yet within the walls of number sixteen, two women very much in love have created a safe and private world that is now threatened by the mounting tide of Nazism. They must plan their escape. But is it already too late?
“Well written, thought provoking…has a feel of something by Terrence Rattigan, because it has a quiet, dusty feel and you can really be there with Elwira in her rooms with all her family’s treasures around her and feel the juggernaut of destruction that threatens everyone and everything around her, even though she refuses to believe it…There’s a good twist that I should have seen coming but didn’t. Recommended.” – Erastes, UK Writer of Gay Historical Fiction
