Balkan Monastery: A Novel
Frederick A. Stokes, 1936 - 328 pagine
"An unusual novel, of a little known facet of the war -- not in the front trenches, but in a Serbian monastery where 80 young girls from Belgrade have been placed for safety. The relief forces fail them -- the advance of the Germans finds them deserted even by the old monks. One child runs away to seek her brother, and -- at the time of the realignment of races and boundaries, she is adopted by Bulgarians, and her Serbian heritage comes militantly to the fore. Eventually, she runs away again and is found by her father." --Kirkus review.
