Publisher's Summary

Can their bond survive under the shadow of occupation? 

For fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and The German Midwife comes this unforgettable tale of love, loss, family and the power of hope. 

Kiev, 1941: Watching the Red Army withdraw from Ukraine in the face of Hitler’s relentless advance, sisters Natasha and Lisa Smirnova realise their lives are about to change forever. As the German army occupies their beloved city, the sisters are tested in ways they never thought possible. Lisa’s fiancé Alexei is taken by the invading army, whilst Natasha falls in love with Mark – a Hungarian soldier, enlisted against all his principles on the side of the Nazis.

But as Natasha and Lisa fight to protect the friends and family they hold dear, they must face up to the dark horrors of war and the pain of betrayal. Will they be strong enough to overcome the forces which threaten to tear their family apart?

Critic Reviews

"A powerful and hard-hitting novel, it tackles the themes of loyalty and compassion, and emphasizes the hard choices that need to be made in wartime." (Deborah Swift, author of The Lady's Slipper)

"The author, Lana Kortchik, has done her homework, and it shows. Her writing style is crisp and vivid, and she gives us dialogue that jumps off the page. I rarely see writing of this quality, and the book was a pleasure to read." (Harry Fox, author of The Stonegate Sword)

"Its powerfully descriptive language pulls you in to the bleakness of war, the longing for peace, and the exhilaration of profound, unconditional love." (Marie Silk, author of Davenport House)

Yes. The shadows will always be with us but the rain bow too

Wow. What a great book. I’ve read very little about Nazi occupation in Eastern Europe or Ukraine or soviet Russia. The nazis really hated the people and now I see why there was such Terrible retaliation from red army to German people. I loved all the characters and the authors development of them was excellent. I want to read more from the novelist She showed the goodness of people in times of extreme poverty. Having nothing but helping when the could
