Friday Finds at the Bookstore: The Warsaw Conspiracy by James Conroyd Martin

I found this book by accident the other day while perusing Goodreads, and I could barely contain my excitement! Years ago I fell in love with James Conroyd Martin's Push Not the River, and I have been impatiently awaiting his next novel ever since. This novel will definitely be placed on the top of my TBR pile! 

Publication Date: December 12th 2012
Format: Paperback 508pp

Synopsis (From the Publisher):
"Engaging and opulent, THE WARSAW CONSPIRACY unfolds as a family saga set against the November Rising (1830-1831), partitioned Poland’s daring challenge to the Russian Empire. Brilliantly illustrating the psyche of a people determined to reclaim independence in the face of monumental odds, the story portrays two brothers and their fates in love and war. Michał is a seasoned veteran soldier, cautious of the evolving conspiracy; Józef, his much younger brother and impassioned cadet, finds himself caught up in the vortex of a daring plot to abduct the Grand Duke of Russia. With Siberia or emigration to France looming as heart-rending contingencies, matriarchs Anna and Zofia stay steadfast in their resolve to steer the clan through ever-muddying waters."

*Unlike his other books, I could only find this one available for purchase on Amazon.
Friday Finds at the Bookstore is hosted by Svea @ The Muse in the Fog Book Review. The purpose of this event is to share a book that has caught your attention over the past week while wandering the bookstore.

Best to you and your writing and site!
