SARAJEVO 1991. To the home of Adam and Finola Vidaković comes their new lodger, the concert pianist Daniel Danuczek, who will be teaching at the Conservatory. He captivates both Finola and her daughter, Irena. But civil war will soon force Daniel back to London and hold Sarajevo in its pitiless grip, with lifechanging and tragic consequences.
A Place of Springs is a complex novel of epic scope, which explores the physical and psychological damage inflicted by war. It follows Daniel’s fortunes as he searches for lost love and faces a crisis that changes the path of his career. Written with compassion, humour and insight, this is a compelling story of love and loss, the significance of friendship, and the power of music both to express and triumphantly transcend human pain.
