Overview

As Hitler's Third Reich crumbles and Stalin's army advances, German civilians in the Eastern territories are forced to flee for their lives. Leaving her dying mother, Liesel and her four young children hope they can make it from their home in Poland across the Oder River to safety. But all that awaits them is terror and uncertainty in a brutal new regime that threatens to tear Liesel's family apart. With her husband a prisoner of war in Russia and her children enslaved, Liesel's desire for hearth and home is thwarted by opposing political forces, leaving her to wonder if they will ever be a family again.

Reviews

"A story that rings true on multiple levels... this quiet narrative deftly guides readers outside of their comfort zones, demanding that attention be paid to the follies of the past."  Chanticleer Reviews Winner of the Word Guild's 2016 Word Award for Historical Fiction
