Vaclav and Lena, both the children of Russian émigrés, are at the same time from radically different worlds. While Vaclav’s burgeoning love of performing magic is indulged by hard-working parents pursuing the American dream, troubled orphan Lena is caught in a domestic situation no child should suffer through. Taken in as one of her own by Vaclav’s big-hearted mother, Lena might finally be able to blossom; in the naive young magician’s eyes, she is destined to be his “faithful assistant”…but after a horrific discovery, the two are ripped apart without even a goodbye. Years later, they meet again. But will their past once more conspire to keep them apart?
The wonderful folks at Random House not only sent me a copy of Vaclav & Lena, they also sent me a copy to share with a friend. I thought who better to share it with than my friends in the blogosphere. Leave a comment July 29th at 11:59pm EDT and I will pick on winner using Random.org. Good luck everyone.
