By Alma A Hromic and R A Deckert.

Alma A. Hromic was born in Yugoslavia and now lives in New Zealand.

"A heart-wrenching love story told in the form of e-mail messages between a man in the U.S.A. and a woman in Yugoslavia, set during the 1999 NATO campaign in Kosovo.

When the war over Kosovo begins, American writer Dave Barker puts forward his pro-NATO views on the Internet. He is challenged by Sasha Kovacevic, a Serbian journalist who is living in a Yugoslav city which is under attack from NATO forces."

"The novel explores a deepening relationship between two 'enemies', a Serb woman living in the city of Novi Sad, Yugoslavia, and an American from Florida, during seven weeks of war. The two protagonists, Sasha and Dave, first clash on an Internet writers' newsgroup, then take their discussion of the developing war into a private e-mail correspondence exploring the ramifications of the conflict between their two countries, as well as a growing and disturbing attraction between them. Sasha and Dave fall in love despite themselves, finding something rare and precious in the wreckage left behind by the warplanes of the bombing campaign. Powerful and moving, the love story of two ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances unfolds against the panorama of a human tragedy.

Dave's ideas and opinions are tested against Sasha's eyewitness accounts of the war zone as he finds both his intellect and his affections engaged by a spirited, articulate and outspoken girl from a different world. She finds his strength of character and carefully concealed sentimental streak equally appealing. They begin making tentative plans for After The War, when the world might allow them to make a life together, but events overtake them.

Historically accurate, Letters from the Fire is an indictment of war and hatred and a testimony to the transcendent power of love."
