About Book

Poland, 1939. It is the Russian occupation, not the German invasion, which destroys the aristocratic Kolbeck family. In 1940, they and hundreds of thousands of Poles are driven like cattle into the wastes of Siberia where they are forced to labor for the cause of 'democracy'.

Stephanie's husband offended the files of blood and class when he bought her into the family. Now she has to fend for herself amongst people who not only count her inferior, but who harbour a dark secret from her past.

During the horrific journey from Siberia to the northern borders of Persia, Stephanie loses nearly all those she loves. But through her eyes and her through her bravery, it's possible to perceive an answer to what would otherwise appear a total indictment, not of particular individuals or countries, but of humanity itself.
