A Home in Bohemia

Roger Burke with A Home In Bohemia adds to his reputation as one of America’s premier novelists whether writing his classic love stories or writing a historical novel. As one critic commented, *“The writing is fluent, the reading easy, a well-told tale much more than a spoonful of sugar in a cup of Czech coffee….A Home In Bohemia is a powerful reminder that the totalitarian tree, unless nipped in the bud, will grow and bear holocausts…”

Burke takes us back in time to when the legendary General George S. Patton’s troops liberated parts of Czechoslovakia and his battle weary soldiers were allowed to mix with the local population. There one soldier fell in love with a young Bohemian woman. That love story had far-reaching consequences on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Forty-four years later that soldier’s son arrives in Bohemia after the revolution swept the communists out of power. His curiosity about his father’s war history leads him into unsuspected political intrigues and a romance of his own.
