Today, my Teasers are from

Degrees of CourageClick on the book cover to know more about it

This is an interesting memoir/history/ historical fiction on three Hungarian generations of women, one of them being the author herself.
I went to Hungary in 1988 and loved very much this country. I’m fascinated by its history, that’s why I accepted to read the book.
It’s a big book, with 566 pages full of tiny characters! But so far it’s really worth it.

Made aware that Russians were in their vicinity, the younger women smeared dirt on their faces and covered their heads with black kerchiefs to make them appear old and unattractive…

Their task finished and content that the place was secure, the Russians turned to leave.
p.250

  1. I really liked this book as well even though it was soooooooooooooooo Long. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping back to my blog and commenting about Unravelled and Becoming Josephine. I liked Unravelled, but didn’t like all the war info. The author did a fantastic job of researching both wars, though.

    Have a great week.
