My rating: 5 of 5 stars
How not to give 5 stars to this book? This is an impossible task.
The plot describes the story of a 15-year-old girl, Lina and how his family was pulled apart by the Soviet secret police, NKVD, later denominated as the famous KGB.
Lina, her mother and his brother were forced to travel into castle cars until they reached their final destiny: Siberia.
The author described in her fist novel how Stalin had “cleaned” the Baltic region by the death of hundreds of thousand people without any distinction among women and their innocent children.
An advice to further readers: hold your breath while reading this book!!
