Book 2 of TSURA Duet. Tsura is shattered. The last year has taught her two things. First, life is a process of losing. Second, the only way to survive it is to turn whatever's left of her heart into stone. But survive she will. She promised her brother Luca. Her husband Mihai also made promises to her brother. To protect her, even when she doesn't want it. And Mihai's still holding onto secrets. Tsura doesn't want to care. Making her heart stone is more difficult than she thought, though, especially with the memory of the passion-and-grief-filled night she and Mihai spent together lodged so firmly in her head. Meanwhile, Russia and Germany threaten to play out the last battles of the war with Romania as their stage. Bombs rip apart cities, revolutions split the nation, friends become enemies and old enemies become new threats. When the Communist banner is raised over Romania, neither Tsura nor Mihai are safe. If they manage to escape with their lives, can they get past the pain they've lived through to once and for all be man and wife? Or will circumstances separate them forever?
