Local author Maria Dziedzan moved to Nottingham at the age of four, having been born in Grimsby to a Ukrainian father and a Welsh mother. Her father wanted to ensure that she was aware of her Ukrainian roots, and large portions of her childhood were spent at the Ukrainian Centre in Nottingham and writing letters to family members back ‘home’ in Ukraine.
Maria’s two novels, When Sorrows Come and Driven into Exile, explore her Ukrainian heritage and are based on stories she collected from friends and family about life in Soviet Ukraine during the war.
Maria’s first novel When Sorrows Come won The Big
Bingham Book Read in 2015 and was a finalist for the Historical Novel Society
Indie Award in 2015. Driven Into Exile is the 2nd book in the My Lost Country series.
