Somehow a one-sided description of the period of life in Yugoslavia during first years after the Second World War. I do not know how are reliable the facts described, from the point of view of historical truth, but it seemed to me a one-sided coverage of what was happening at that time in this geographical area after the war, like those who fought against the Nazis represented as some kind of enemy.
From the point of view of the human factor, sometimes it is hard to read about what is being described.
This book reminded me in part a book “Like water to the chocolate” and partly “Twin peaks”, despite the fact that there is nothing in common neither in the plot, nor in the place where everything is happening.

Secrets and betrayals in a small village in Yugoslavia in 1953. Character-based, compelling and rewarding.
