A USA Today Bestselling Author
Since she was nine, Alina Dziak knew she would marry her best friend, Tomasz. Now fifteen and engaged, Alina believes her neighbors that the Nazi soldiers at the Polish border pose no threat, and dreams of the day Tomasz returns from college in Warsaw. But little by little, the Nazi occupation takes hold and Alina's village is divided by fear and hate. Then Tomasz disappears. Alina once measured time between visits from her beloved; now she measures the space between hope and despair. Slipping between Nazi-occupied Poland and modern life, Kelly Rimmer's finely wrought narrative weaves two women's stories into a tapestry of perseverance, loyalty, love and honor.
