Beyond the Lion Gate [Morelle Smith]


BEYOND THE LION GATE: A beautifully engaging novel of young people working in an organisation in Albania in the 1990s. How Paula faces the changing truths about her fellow workers, and learns to deal with her strong response to Engjell, and how the group of friends and workers manage to move on. More than a love story, full of authentic detail of the problems, dangers and landscapes in a country recovering from political turmoil, and with a warm underlying philosophy of survival.
