This novel about conflicts of conscience explores an unusual love triangle of a man, a woman, and the Czech countryside. Mikulaš is an architect who has spent his career designing prefab high-rise apartment blocks in Prague, when his dream has been to design garden apartment complexes in the countryside that he loves. Finally winning the heart of an artist named Olga, a woman he first fell in love with 20 years earlier, Mikulaš must now make a decision between her and his homeland. Filled with striking images, fresh metaphors, and colorful language, this beautiful, reflective novel examines both the spiritual limitations imposed by communism and a life abandoned and started anew.
