From the front jacket:
In 1945 Rosemary Kavan married a Czech communist in England and went to live in Prague. Her husband, Pavel, became a diplomat and was implicated in the Slansky show trials of the early 50s and sentenced to 25 years in prison. He died soon after his release in 1957. Branded as a traitor's wife, Kavan struggled to support herself and her 2 sons. She worked as a translator, a drill operator in a factory, and a tracer of blueprints for state railroads, and remained in her adopted country to experience the elation of the Prague Spring....
As an outsider, Kavan had a unique view of social and political live during the massive upheavals of the 50s and 60s....
