Faithful River

Originally published in 1912, this lyrical novel is set in a manor house in central Poland during the January Uprising of 1863 to 1864, when a volunteer Polish army futilely fought the Russian occupation. A wounded soldier appears outside the house and is cared for by Salomea, the young ward of the absent owners, who has been left in the manor with an aged servant. As the two strive to conceal the soldier's presence during brutal and invasive visits by the Russians, Salomea finds herself falling in love with her patient.

This novel made me think of Silas Marner in that you can't really imagine the situation involving Salomea and the Duke actually taking place, but in the back of your mind you say to yourself 'yes it can' because part of you wants to believe. It is a unique blend of history, romance, and adventure in a tale which enchants in a manner that can't quite be determined; maybe that's its magic.
