Historical Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Miklos survives WWII only to be told his lungs are full of fluid and he will die from tuberculosis. Narrator Arthur Morey brings out the humor in this unlikely true story of how the author's parents met—as Hungarian pen pals recovering in Sweden. Morey’s wide vocal range captures the cast of international characters, including Swedes and Hungarians. Listeners will enjoy this unique combination of history and humor, which builds in suspense as 117 letters are delivered back and forth between the principals. Despite being told he has six months to live, Miklos is looking for a wife. Listeners will always be eager to hear what happens next in this original love story.
