Publisher's Summary

For fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Pam Jenoff and Kate Furnivall comes this powerful tale of love, loss and the power of hope.

Watching the Red Army withdraw from Ukraine in the face of Hitler’s relentless advance, Natasha Smirnova realises her life is about to change forever.

As Kiev is cast under the dark cloud of occupation, Natasha falls in love with Mark, a Hungarian soldier, enlisted against all his principles on the side of the Nazis.

But as Natasha fights to protect the friends and family she holds dear she must face up to the dark horrors of war and the pain of betrayal. Will the love she and Mark share be strong enough to overcome the forces which threaten to tear them apart?

What the critics say

"A powerful and hard-hitting novel, it tackles the themes of loyalty and compassion, and emphasizes the hard choices that need to be made in wartime." (Deborah Swift, author of The Lady's Slipper)

"The author, Lana Kortchik, has done her homework, and it shows. Her writing style is crisp and vivid, and she gives us dialogue that jumps off the page. I rarely see writing of this quality, and the book was a pleasure to read." (Harry Fox, author of The Stonegate Sword)

"Its powerfully descriptive language pulls you in to the bleakness of war, the longing for peace, and the exhilaration of profound, unconditional love." (Marie Silk, author of Davenport House)
