***About The Author***
James Conroyd Martin is a newly-retired teacher and writer of Irish and Norwegian descent, who has been working on his Poland trilogy for many years. It began with PUSH NOT THE RIVER, a novelization of a real countess' diary of her experiences in the 1790s, during the rise and fall of Poland's Third of May Constitution years. The family saga continued with AGAINST A CRIMSON SKY and concludes with THE WARSAW CONSPIRACY.
The Polish translations of the first two books, Nie ponaglaj rzeki & Pod purpurowym niebem, became bestsellers in Poland. The translation of THE WARSAW CONSPIRACY has been set in motion.
The next book is tentatively titled THE BOY WHO WANTED WINGS, a story of the Polish hussars at the Battle Of Vienna, the first 9-11. Martin holds degrees from St. Ambrose and DePaul universities.
***About The Book***
'PUSH NOT THE RIVER' is the rich story of Poland in the late 1700s, a time of heartache and turmoil as the country's once peaceful people are being torn apart by neighboring countries and divided loyalties. It is then, at the young and vulnerable age of seventeen, when Lady Anna Maria Berezowska loses both of her parents and must leave the only home she has ever known. With Empress Catherine's Russian armies streaming in to take their spoils, Anna is quickly thrust into a world of love and hate, loyalty and deceit, patriotism and treason and life and death. Even kind Aunt Stella, Anna's new guardian who soon comes to personify Poland's courage and spirit, can't protect Anna from the uncertain future of the country.
Vivid, romantic, and thrillingly paced, 'PUSH NOT THE RIVER' paints the emotional and unforgettable story of the metamorphosis of a nation--and of a proud and resilient young woman.
