Nad niemnem by Eliza Orzeszkowa Book editions published between and in 6 languages and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Unhappy after being abandoned by her fiance, Justyna, an impoverished young woman who lives in a manor house belonging to relatives, desires a life of greater usefulness.
