Step ahead of disaster

A family trapped in a divided Czechoslovakia... 'one of the classics of our era'

‘A cracking good story is not often told as honest autobiography... Within the pages of this brief book, the world of the twentieth century turns upside down. A noble family of proud aristocrats is humbled, imprisoned, reduced to slave labor, and their once great and manicured properties are pushed into ruin…

‘Turning the pages rapidly as suspense mounts, the reader will follow the efforts of the young aristocrat, married to a young Californian of striking beauty, to rescue their children (from the Nazis) and later his parents (from the Communists)…

‘Few books so well convey the feeling of a thousand-year era collapsing, or reveal the character of an aristocratic heir to privilege whose vision throughout remains moral and truthful, unbounded by considerations solely of class or custom…’
