One night in 1941, fifteen-year-old Lina, her mother and young brother are hauled from their home by Soviet guards, thrown into cattle cars and taken away. They are being deported to Siberia. An unimaginable and harrowing journey has begun… Lina doesn’t know if she’ll ever see her father or her friends again. But she refuses to give up hope. For her family. For her country. For her future. And for love – first love with a boy she barely knows, but knows she does not want to lose. Is hope enough to keep Lina alive? Written by the daughter of a Lithuanian refugee, this is a haunting novel based on true events, drawing on family history and memories of exiled survivors.
