The Iron Curtain has been torn open, setting Poland on the road to democracy. But can true freedom come to those still bound by tragic memories of - Florian's Gate
When Jeffrey Sinclair takes on the challenge of assisting in a high-priced London antique shop, he discovers that more than good salesmanship to wealthy customers is required.
Alexander Kantor, his enigmatic relative and employer, has a reputation for acquiring priceless antiques under mysterious circumstances. As Jeffrey learns the business and becomes more deeply involved, he discovers that the source of the antiques is not the only secret Alexander has hidden.
And the woman Jeffrey loves, Katya Nichols, also has secrets to hide. Even as they travel to Germany and then to Poland on a buying trip for Alexander, Katya's shrouded, undisclosed past acts as a barrier, an Iron Curtain that separates Jeffrey from her love.
His excursion into the Eastern Bloc takes Jeffrey to places he had never imagined to the secret treasure troves of Europe, to poverty-stricken men and women haunted by the past and hoarding their few valuables against a final day of reckoning.
But the journey takes him inward as well, into his own pain and the related wounds of those he loves, a place where only a divine Father can bring hope and light. [via]
