Meet the Nowaks—Silvana, Janusz and their son Aurek—who have come to live at 22 Britannia Road in Ipswich, England after WWII. Earlier this winter I read Ben Shephard’s The Long Road Home: The Aftermath of the Second World War. Hodgkinson’s literary debut about displaced Silvana and Aurek who come from Poland to England to join RAF veteran Janusz is probably a more true-to-life tale than we know. Such heartbreak, such secrets. I won’t forget these characters—survivors in the truest sense—soon. A masterful novel of finding ‘home.’
