Description

"Fever at Dawn has the sweetness of The Rosie Project and the pathos of The Fault in Our Stars...? book to fall in love with." - Herald Sun It's 1945 and MiklOs is looking for a wife. The fact that he has six months left to live doesn't discourage him - he isn't one to let small problems like that stand in the way, especially not after he's survived a concentration camp. Currently marooned in an all-male sanatorium in Sweden, and desperate to get out, he acquires the names of the 117 Hungarian women also recovering in Sweden and writes each of them a letter in his beautiful cursive hand. Luckily for him, Lili decides to write back. Drawn from the real-life letters of Peter GArdos's parents, and reminiscent of the film Life Is Beautiful,Fever at Dawn is a vibrant, ribald, and unforgettable tale, showing the death-defying power of the human will to live and to love. "At once heartrending and lighthearted, this romance covers enormous ground in love and war, joy and tragedy." - Shelf Awareness, starred review "A riveting and high-spirited journey from the brink of death toward life, [Fever at Dawn] asserts the power of love." - Julie Orringer, author of The Invisible Bridge
