Against a Crimson Sky : Against a Crimson Sky tells the stories of four characters who are irrevocably linked in the aftermath of Poland's violent dissolution in 1794, a break culminating in the doomed 1812 winter march into Russia. Countess Anna Maria Berezowska has finally married her true love, Jan Stelnicki, but life is anything but ideal. Shortly after their union, Jan takes to the battlefield in the hopes of ensuring a sovereign Poland for his children. Meanwhile, his best friend on the front lines continues to pine for Anna's cousin, Zofia, but she has her sights set on Emperor Napoleon. Against a Crimson Sky interweaves these tales of intrigue, love, and betrayal as one proud nation and one strong family struggle for unity.
