22 Britannia Road

Amanda Hodgkinson

22 Britannia Road tells the story of Polish emigres Silvana and Janusz making a home for themselves in post-war Britain with their son Aurek. Separated for six long years throughout the war, Silvana and Aurek have been in hiding in the forests of Poland, while Janusz's story is even more chequered. Each of the three have secrets: but in order to learn to live together again, they will have to accept what happened and the choices that war forced upon them in Poland. At the heart of the story is Silvana and Janusz's desperate desire to make a new home for their wild, woodland boy. With echoes of Small Island and Sophie's Choice, 22 Britannia Road is a powerful novel of acceptance, survival and love.

Amanda Hodgkinson has an MA in creative writing from UEA and now lives in France, where she is working on her second novel.
