“Where is My Home?” by Martin Gillard is published

This is a story of love and human resilience as two ordinary people fight to survive Fascism and Communist oppression

About the Book:

When the young state of Czechoslovakia is betrayed by Britain and France in 1938, two newlyweds, Tomáš and Anna Kovarik, flee to France to escape Nazi tyranny. Believing themselves safe in France the young couple build a new life. But Hitler cannot be stopped and soon France too is in danger. Tomáš struggles to keep his Jewish wife and their young child safe. He does not know this struggle will last a lifetime, as he encounters French collaboration, the Communist takeover of his country after World War Two, and fresh betrayal during the Cold War. Where is My Home? is a story of love and human resilience; the story of two ordinary people who show extraordinary courage in their fight to survive both the Fascist and the Communist tyrannies that dominated the lives of millions.

“Beautifully written; uplifting and heartbreaking in equal measure.”
— John Ivor Jones

5.0 out of 5 stars
A wonderfully moving, emotional rollercoaster

I started to read “Where is My Home?” after lunch. I finished it at 2am! It is a wonderfully moving emotional rollercoaster. There was a point when I didn't want to continue and then I couldn't put it down. I found myself with tears at several moments

From an historical perspective, it is a great insight into mid-20th century Europe from the position of two (extra) ordinary and principled characters. The research must have been meticulous.

It is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars
Dramatic insight into some lesser known history
14 May 2018
Format: Paperback

I really enjoyed this book from two very different points of view. On one hand, I was deeply impressed by the author's research, knowledge and obvious comfort with the historical material, and on the other, I became truly involved with Tomas and his compelling emotional and political struggles. (And the actual characters and fictional ones are woven together seamlessly.)

There's no hiding from the fact that the action and jeopardy are grim, but they are always gripping and tinged with hope, making the whole journey a rather radiant and positive adventure story.

And I'm also grateful to learn more about this important twentieth century history - like many people I knew only the barest details.
