Publisher Description

NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST
DAYTON LITERARY PEACE PRIZE WINNER


A stirring tale of brotherhood, coming of age, and survival during World War I

The Sojourn is the story of Jozef Vinich, who was uprooted from a 19th-century mining town in Colorado by a family tragedy and returns with his father to an impoverished shepherd’s life in rural Austria-Hungary. When war comes, Jozef joins his adopted brother as a sharpshooter in the Kaiser’s army, surviving a perilous trek across the frozen Italian Alps and capture by a victorious enemy.

Strikingly contemporary though replete with evocative historical detail, The Sojourn is the freestanding, first novel of Andrew Krivak’s award-winning Dardan Trilogy, which concludes with Like the Appearance of Horses. Inspired by the author’s family history, it is also a poignant tale of fathers and sons, addressing the great immigration to America and the desire to live the American dream amid the unfolding tragedy in Europe.

The sojourn

This book, is without doubt, the best book I have read in a long time. Look forward to more by this author.

The sojourn

This book was really hard to finish! Seemed to ramble on with no real plot. Was more like a personal journal than a novel. I would not recommend it.
