Description - The Albanian by Donna Mazza

Winner 2005 T A G Hungerford Award for FictionRosa, a young woman, from small- country-town Australia, longing for mystery, adventure and the exotic, is fatally attracted to a romantic image of Eastern Europe, arriving alone in Dubrovnik in the months before the implosion of the old Yugoslavia.Rosa has no idea of the politics, yet she ends up dangerously drawn into a relationship with a young Albanian on his path to becoming a political refugee. Unable to tease apart destiny, reality and fantasy, she becomes a captive of her heart and the excitement and danger of the unknown.Rosa does survive her ordeal - at times exhilarating, at times terrifying - finding within herself an unexpected strength and maturity, and ultimately finding love and belonging in the one place she had never looked.In this dreamy and delicate tale about longing and belonging, exile, love and war, Donna Mazza brings us an updated variation on the theme of the innocent abroad - the Romantic idealist searching for a Romantic hero.
