This is my all time favorite!! An epic multi-volume set by the Polish author famous for "Quo Vadis." The Deluge is a romantic recreation of the struggle of Poland to repel Sweden from within its borders. Multiple themes include romance, Catholicism, chivalry, & individual perseverence. "The Deluge" is said to be as popular in Poland as the bible, with copies in almost every household there! This book set (two large volumes)has become a great and wonderful friend! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0870520040, Hardcover)

This is the second book of the Trilogy, Poland's national prose epic which has long been "lost" to the Western world. Written by the 1905 Nobel laureate, it is here translated directly into English for the first time and adapted for modern readers by W.S. Kuniczak. It is a panoramic novel of courage, love, faith, treason and redemption, recounting the struggles of Poland against invasions from Russia, Prussia and Sweden in the 17th century.
