This review is from: They Were Divided (Writing on the Wall: The Transylvania Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
I read the entire trilogy of Miklos Banfy's history of the turn of the century in what was, variously, Hungary, Romania, Austria, Czechoslovakia etc., with continually moving borders. It was incredibly evocative of an era long gone, the pre WWI central Europe, the politics, the great estates, the social whirls, the loves and the hatreds, the competing kingdoms and families...absolutely riveting. A major achievement.
