Description of this Book
The Note Through the Wire is a true World War II love story about a Slovenian partisan, Josefine Lobnik, and a New Zealand prisoner of war, Bruce Murray, who met by chance when she pushed a note through the barbed wire fence of a POW camp. A series of remarkable coincidences saw their lives intersect, but they had to overcome extraordinary obstacles to realise their dream of a life together. On one level this is a rollicking yarn, with tales of intrigue, daring, resistance, retaliation and escape. On another it's a fascinating account of the resistance movement, the disastrous Allied Greek campaign, the harshness of wartime life in a conquered nation, the civil tensions that divided a young country and the barbarity of the advancing Soviet forces. But at its heart this is an against-all-odds love story between a POW and a local freedom fighter - a true story with all the elements of fast-paced fiction.
