Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa, two vast lakes joined by underground rivers set within the mountainous borderlands of North Macedonia, Albania and Greece, and crowned by the old Roman road, the via Egnatia. These two lakes have played a central role in Kapka Kassabova's maternal family. As she journeys to her grandmother's place of origin, Kassabova encounters a civilisational crossroads. Exploring the stories of poets, fishermen, and caretakers, misfits, rulers, and inheritors of war and exile, Kassabova uncovers the human history shaped by the Lakes. Her book also becomes a deeper enquiry into how geography and politics imprint themselves upon families and nations, and raises questions about the human capacity for change.
