Suzi O Connor

The Ancestral Ring of Hope; an historical fiction novel inspired by events that led to the 1956 Hungarian revolution 

 

The Ancestral Ring of Hope

A high price for freedom in war torn Hungary

Synopsis

István was a young man when the Iron Curtain blanketed Eastern Europe after the Second World War, vandalising the fabric of Hungarian society.

Tortured for criticising the tyranny suffered under Communism, he conspires with likeminded rebels to retaliate and regain their liberty. But the Soviet masters are uncompromising.

During twelve days in late 1956, the full might of Russia is unleashed, crushing the revolution. István’s fate is sealed. Fleeing reprisal and certain death is vital for he and his beautiful and beloved wife Natália.

The Captain of Győr Police Headquarters, Viktor Molnár, has other plans, thwarting and executing fugitives. Obsessed with Natália —his new elusive prize — Viktor stops at nothing to attain her.

The Ancestral Ring of Hope is a compelling story of love, grief, courage, and a resolute quest for freedom.

Parallels between this novel and the horror unfolding in Ukraine at the hands of Russia’s dictator proves history does repeat.

It’s a timely reminder of the fragility of peace and democracy and how easily they can be shattered by tyrants seeking power.
