This is a heartbreakingly beautiful novel - and I am so very glad that I read it! In 1939, Lina is just 15 years old when her family is deported from their home in Lithuania and forced to spend years working in labor camps in Siberia, where the conditions were similar to Nazi concentration camps. Despite the devastating circumstances, she amazingly manages to retain her identity, her dignity, her hope for a future of freedom, and even manages to find love. Haunting, horrific, and simply beautiful, this is a book that will be appreciated by teens and adults alike. Highly recommend.
