I couldn't put the book down once started, until I finished it. I felt every page. It was very real. The story was beautiful, excellently written, the author depicts beautifully the heart of the Serbian people & the situation that has been going on and how well it affects individual lives, families, and a beautiful love story unfolds as well. The reader is captivated!

The story told in this book is marvelously engaging and satisfying. I finished reading it several weeks ago, yet the characters remain alive in my mind. I thoroughly enjoyed being transported to the small Serbian village where I observed a lifestyle and customs different from mine. I knew there was a particularly heartbreaking episode coming in the main character's life (no spoiler alert- it was mentioned in the book description). It took me 3 days and many deep breaths- so closely did I identify with this character- to read through it. Ms. Nogulich's account of the aftermath of this event was so authentic that I, too, endured Yelena's despair. This story unfolds with warmth, humor and a healthy dose of spiritualism. It exemplifies the resilience and devotion of a young mother as she learns to go on with her life without relinquishing her past. This tale/adventure/tragedy/romance/drama made such an impact on me that I did not want it to end- I will keep looking for a sequel. And that, my friends, is the sign of a good story!
One Woman's War is one woman's masterpiece. Natalija Nogulich, consummate actor of stage and screen has delivered a historical novel that glows in the dark. It is storytelling at its best. Filled with love and loss, revenge and redemption, Ms. Nogulich has the gift to simply weave a complex tapestry of epic drama with one woman's own destiny, that spans generations and continents. The first installment in a trilogy, One Woman's War is a compelling page turner, funny, poignant, bittersweet, and beautifully written with a sense of poetry and life's absurdities. It is a must read.

One Woman's War is a heartfelt saga of one woman's courage and strength in the face of the terrible tragedy she suffers in her quiet village turned upside down by the cruel divisions of war. Natalija Nogulich understands the worlds of her heroine and paints a loving picture of the once peaceful village where her family has thrived for generations. She writes with a tender appreciation of those rich worlds.

Just finished Natalja Nogulich's debut novel "ONE WOMAN'S WAR". In one word: WOW! You want more? It's raw, it's colorful, and it has a pulpy energy that kept me up reading until FOUR IN THE @#@#@# MORINING!!! Had to throw my circadian clock out the window!!! "ONE WOMAN'S WAR" has got it all: action, passion, love, horror, exotic locales, slivovitz and stuffed cabbage. You will leave "ONE WOMAN'S WAR" entertained. You will leave it with a bigger heart. Enjoy!

The images of the Serbian conflict that is still going on was eye opening and heart wrenching. Yet in contrast, the author’s Gracie Allen reference perfectly showed the sweet, wirily, humorous side of young Yelena as she struggled to find peace in a new life. Beautifully written!
