Anikó: The stranger who loved me

A biography


This is the story of a woman who achieved the impossible and survived the unsurvivable — more than once. Her courage, imagination and ruthlessness saved her and her family during the terrible years of the Second World War. Hampered by the stifling atmosphere of life behind the Iron Curtain, and by being a woman in a male-dominated culture, she nevertheless built a million-dollar export business. But the greatest challenge of her life was to protect her husband Antal’s dignity for 31 years…

Her son resented the coming of a new man into her life, and carried out a secret war against his stepfather. This may have eventually resulted in one of them murdering the other. Instead, Antal managed to have the boy transported to Australia for the term of his natural life.

How would you react if the man you loved tore your child from you?

This is a book of passion, told with force by that son as a tribute to his mother’s memory. It is a story that will draw you in, entertain you, and teach you about the strength of the human spirit.

Anikó: The stranger who loved you has won three awards.
