July 1945. Miklos is a twenty-five-year-old Hungarian who has survived the camps and has been brought to Sweden to convalesce. His doctor has just given him a death sentence: his lungs are filled with fluid and in six months he will be gone. But Miklos has other plans. He didn't survive the war only to drown from within, and so he wages war on his own fate. He acquires the names of the 117 Hungarian women also recovering in Sweden, and he writes a letter to each of them in his beautiful cursive hand. One of these women, he is sure, will become his wife. In another part of the country, Lili reads his letter and decides to write back. For the next few months, the two engage in a funny, absurd, hopeful epistolary dance. Eventually, they find a way to meet. Based on the true story of Péter Gárdos's parents

"Wie viele haben geantwortet?" "Beinah zwanzig." "Willst du jeder von ihnen zurückschreiben?" "Sie ist die Richtige", antwortete Miklós. "Und woher weißt du das?" "Ich weiß es einfach." Im Juli 1945 wird Miklós, ein junger Ungar, nach Schweden gebracht. Er hat das KZ Bergen-Belsen überlebt, besteht nur noch aus Haut und Knochen, Zähne hat er auch keine mehr. Sein Arzt gibt ihm sechs Monate. Doch er hat andere Pläne. 117 junge Frauen aus Miklós' Heimatstadt haben wie er die Vernichtungslager überlebt und es nach Schweden in Erholungsheime geschafft. Jeder einzelnen von ihnen schreibt er einen Brief. Eine dieser Frauen wird er heiraten, das hat er sich fest vorgenommen. Hunderte Kilometer entfernt liest Lili seinen Brief und beschließt, ihm zu antworten. Brief um Brief verlieben sich die beiden ineinander. Im Dezember 1945 treffen sich Miklós und Lili zum ersten Mal. Sie haben nur drei Tage. Und lieben sich vom ersten Augenblick. Nun müssen sie nur noch einen Weg finden, wie sie heiraten können. Und Miklós darf nicht sterben. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)
