The Great Fortune book. Rumanian off The Great Fortune is the first book in Olivia Manning’s autobiographical Balkan trilogy – which I first read many moons ago and have been wanting to re-read for ages. Naturally I had forgotten a lot of the details of the novel, and so it was like coming to it afresh.

The Great Fortune is the first in Olivia Manning's Balkan Trilogy. Olivia Manning vividly depicts pre-war Bucharest. The book ends with the realisation that Rumania will also fall and that the Pringles’ survival depends upon their leaving: We’ll get away because we must.

The Great Fortune is the first book in Olivia Manning’s autobiographical Balkan trilogy – which I first read many moons ago and have been wanting to re-read for ages.
