Love and Blood in Bosnia
by Maurice Kamhi

Author and actor Maurice Kamhi paints a poignant portrait of the horrors of war and the complexities of love in this epic saga.

The unnamed protagonist of Love and Blood in Bosnia has spent most of his formative years in the United States. Despite visiting Bosnia for short family vacations, he has been thoroughly Americanized. He lives a comfortable life as an actor and writer, although his love life has left him lonely and searching for “the one.”

This staid existence changes when the Bosnian War breaks out in 1992. His beloved uncle Albert and aunt Zuza are still in the country. After he loses telephone contact with them, our hero makes a risky decision—to travel to Sarajevo and rescue them himself. He hires a husband-and-wife team of Croatians as guides and is soon irresistibly attracted to the woman, even in the midst of danger and disaster.

As he journeys through the former Yugoslavia, the protagonist witnesses the horrors of war firsthand. He also learns about his uncle’s adventures in World War II, which he chronicles along with his own present-day exploits. Along the way, he discovers that heroic quests aren’t always as simple as they appear.
