Contents: "In the waning months of World War II, a small group of people begin the longest journey of their lives. At the center is eighteen-year old Anna, the daughter of Prussian aristocrats, and her first love, a twenty-year old Scottish prisonor of war named Callum. With his boyish good looks and his dedication to her family, he has captured Anna's heart. But he is the enemy, and their love must remain a closely guarded secret. Only Manfred, a twenty-six year old Wehrmacht corporal, knows the truth. And Manfred, who is not what he seems to be, is reluctantly taken with Anna, just as she finds herself drawn uncomfortably to him. As these unlikely allies work their way west, their flight will test both Anna's and Callum's love, as well as their friendship with Manfred --
and will forever bind the young trio together." --

Abstract:

In January 1945, in the waning months of World War II, a small group of people begin the longest journey of their lives: an attempt to cross the remnants of the Third Reich, from Warsaw to the Rhine if necessary, to reach the British and American lines. Among the group is eighteen-year-old Anna Emmerich, the daughter of Prussian aristocrats. There is her lover, Callum Finella, a twenty-year-old Scottish prisoner of war who was brought from the stalag to her family's farm as forced labor. And there is a twenty-six-year-old Wehrmacht corporal, who the pair know as Manfred who is, in reality, Uri Singer, a Jew from Germany who managed to escape a train bound for Auschwitz.
