In this sweeping novel, James A. Michener chronicles eight tumultuous centuries as three Polish families live out their destinies. With an inspiring tradition of resistance to brutal invaders, from the barbarians to the Nazis, and a heritage of pride that burns through eras of romantic passion and courageous solidarity, their common story reaches a breathtaking culmination in the historic showdown between the ruthless Communists and rebellious farmers of the modern age.

The most profoundly moving book I have read in a long time. It has gained me so much more understanding of the Polish people and their culture. A pity the narrator didn't check who to pronounce Polish words like Wrocław.
