More About Fever at Dawn by Peter Gardos; Elizabeth Szasz
 
 
 
Overview
"Fever at Dawn has the sweetness of The Rosie Project and the pathos of The Fault in Our Stars . . . A book to fall in love with." -- Herald Sun

It's 1945 and Miklos is looking for a wife. The fact that he has six months left to live doesn't discourage him -- he isn't one to let small problems like that stand in the way, especially not after he's survived a concentration camp. Currently marooned in an all-male sanatorium in Sweden, and desperate to get out, he acquires the names of the 117 Hungarian women also recovering in Sweden and writes each of them a letter in his beautiful cursive hand. Luckily for him, Lili decides to write back.

Drawn from the real-life letters of Peter Gardos's parents, and reminiscent of the film Life Is Beautiful, Fever at Dawn is a vibrant, ribald, and unforgettable tale, showing the death-defying power of the human will to live and to love.

"At once heartrending and lighthearted, this romance covers enormous ground in love and war, joy and tragedy." -- Shelf Awareness, starred review

"A riveting and high-spirited journey from the brink of death toward life, Fever at Dawn] asserts the power of love." -- Julie Orringer, author of The Invisible Bridge
