Publisher's Summary

Austria, 1938. Anne von Korvacs watches in horror as Hitler's tanks roll through the streets of Vienna. Her embittered ex-husband, now a fervent supporter of the Reich, is among the cavalcade. He is burning with hatred for Anne, seeing her as a symbol of the old Austrian empire he once served.

A chance encounter with a British journalist leaves Anne with a secret microfilm that must be smuggled out of the country, and Anne knows that she must forsake her beloved Vienna and flee to Britain with her children. In a thrilling journey that will separate sisters and brothers, parents and children, Anne and her family escape to freedom, to dream of a reunion in far-away London.

An extremely good book that is factual

This is one book I would highly recommend to anyone who likes this time period

I enjoyed every page of this book. It was very hard for me to put down.



I had no idea that it is the story of Edith Cavell's heroic work in WW 1

I live in Canada and I had never known that one of our mountains is named after her.
