What other readers are saying about this title:
Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
I had read online that people have been picking this book up mistaking it for "Fifty shades of Grey". Not only have they discovered their errors but those who went ahead and read it anyway were rewarded wtih an outstanding and affecting story of Lithuanian deportation and imprisonment in Siberia in the 1940s told by a 15-year-old girl. The horrors endured are starkly drawn yet the resiliency of the human spirit shines through in this fact-based story. It’s estimated that Stalin orchestrated the deaths of appox. 20 million people during his reign of terror. This story and others like it need to be told.
