it was amazing
Read in April, 2012

This is a horrific tale about the enslavement and imprisonment of the Baltic citizens after being invades by Russia in 1940 as told by a young Lithuanian girl called Lina. As a historical fiction, I thought it was done beautifully, honestly and to the point.

This tale has been a long time coming. Since declaring their independence in the 90's, their hardships were not really discussed. I liked the story being told by a child because when researching this book the only people still alive were the children.

I think we must always remember the past in order to make a better tomorrow. We must keep our minds open to the opinions and beliefs of others. We must stand against persecution. One voice does make a difference.
