Sometime last fall, I began seeing reviews for Alyson Richman’s The Lost Wife. A longtime fan of both love stories and historical fiction, reviewers seemed to be enamored with this work focused on the fate of first love in war-torn Prague.
When I signed up for a blogger gift exchange at Christmas, I eagerly placed The Lost Wife on my list — and was delighted when it appeared in my mailbox! Sadly, I’ve yet to mention a little . . . well . . . quirk of mine: I’m shockingly impatient. Forgetting I’d placed the book on my wishlist, I’d bought my own copy days before.
But no matter: my mistake is your gain! I have one new paperback copy of The Lost Wife to give away to one lucky reader in the U.S. As the prize is coming from me, I’m sorry to say I must limit entrants to those in America.
Description from Goodreads:
“In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there’s an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers. Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit — and the strength of memory.”
