1990. Lenka Brett, a smart but unworldly young Irish teacher, volunteers to deliver medical aid when the world learns of the horrifying plight of children in Romanian orphanages. An English naval officer, Captain Simon Trevelyan, volunteers to be her co-driver. Together, they join a convoy of humanitarian aid drivers known as the Rogues, the last hope for those in areas where official charities cannot enter. Lenka falls in love with one of the drivers, but when the Rogues become the target of mercenaries, tragedy follows and she discovers her lover is not who he appeared to be.
“This book is an impressively researched and powerfully depicted tale from an author who can write equally well about fictional characters and historical events. While John Righten proved his storytelling mettle in his previous historical series, The Lenka Trilogy is shaping up to be something far more personal, and for that reason it his most powerful writing yet.” The Independent Review of Books 2019 (US)
“Righten’s protagonist, Lenka, is compelling from the start.
Heartbreak is both thrilling and poignant, and a strong start to the Lenka Trilogy, with a surprise ending that will have readers asking for more. ” Self-Publishing Review (2019) (US)
“Heartbreak is a harrowing but also hopeful story that sets up a powerful trilogy: a highly recommended read.” Readers’ Favorite 2019 (US)
