Abstract:

"An epic novel exposing the ugliness of war and the beauty of hope. The city of Kiev was bombed in Hitler's blitzkrieg across the Soviet Union, but the constant siege was only the beginning for her citizens. In this sweeping historical saga, Kelli Stuart takes the reader on a captivating journey into the little--known history of Ukraine's tragedies through the eyes of four compelling characters who experience the same story from different perspectives" --

The city of Kiev was bombed in Hitler's blitzkrieg across the Soviet Union, but the constant siege was only the beginning for her citizens. Maria Ivanovna is fourteen when the bombing begins and not much older when she is forced into work at a German labor camp. Ivan Kyrilovich is falsely mistaken for a Jew and lined up with 34,000 other men, women, and children who are to be shot at the edge of Babi Yar, the "killing ditch." Luda is sixteen when German soldiers rape her; now pregnant with the child of the enemy, she is abandoned, alone, and in pain. Frederick Hermann is sure in his knowledge that the Führer's plans for domination are right and just.
