Set against the backdrop of World War II, this acclaimed book recounts Olga Watkins’s remarkable true tale of finding – and losing – her true love.
Yugoslavian-born Olga was just 20 when she fell for handsome Hungarian diplomat Julius Koreny.
But as the war took hold, their lives were turned upside down when Julian was inexplicably seized by the Gestapo, leaving a terrified young Olga desperate for news of his whereabouts.
Despite the lurking dangers and against her family’s wishes, Olga set off to search for her fiancé, a journey that would end more than two years and 2,000 miles later.
Who could have ever imagined their love story would reach its climax within the blood-stained walls of a German concentration camp….
Now aged 89 and living in London, Olga is thrilled her story which has already moved so many in Britain will be told in her own native tongue.
“I’m delighted A Greater Love is going to be published in my home country,” she said. “This means so very much to me.”
