JyothiMenon Lock on Bridge Tumski

Literature

A story of how love endures through time and trouble, this novel begins with German Breslau being made into Polish Wroclaw in the aftermath of World War II. Peter Adler and Lena Katzer fall madly in love during their university days. Torn apart by World War II, they are stranded on opposite sides of the world – Peter remains in Wroclaw, while Lena, after facing many vicissitudes, ends up in Cochin, Kerala, in India. They lose touch, despite searching desperately for each other, but Peter suddenly receives a letter, thirty-two years later, and hope is rekindled.
