"It is Hodgkinson's portrait of the primal bond between mother and child, her visceral understanding of the gorgeous, terrible weight of love mothers must carry, war or no war, secret or no secret, that leaves an indelible impression."
From the Publisher
Annotation A mother and child depart Poland at the close of the Second World War, aiming for a home in Ipswich, England, cultivated by Janusz, the husband and father separated from them by six years. Despite their astounding survival, the refugees are starkly changed by their experience hiding out in the Polish countryside, while even Janusz collected secrets during his comparative comfort in wartime England. As Silvana and Janusz struggle to grow used to one another again while shepherding eight-year-old Aurek through these startling changes in his life, the story of 22 BRITANNIA ROAD clings to a determined notion that family is never really destroyed.
Editors Note "Hodgkinson's portrait of the primal bond between mother and child . . . leaves an indelible impression." ?The New York Times Book ReviewDebuting its first week on the New York Times bestseller list and earning comparisons to Sophie's Choice and Sarah's Key, 22 Britannia Road is an astonishing first novel that powerfully chronicles one family's struggle to create a home in the aftermath of war.With World War II finally over, Silvana and her seven-year-old son, Aurek, board the ship that will take them to England, where Silvana's husband, Janusz?determined to forget his ghosts?has rented a little house at 22 Britannia Road. But after years spent hiding in the forests of Poland, Aurek is wild, almost feral. And for Silvana, who cannot escape the painful memory of a shattering wartime act, forgetting is not a possibility.
