Content descriptions

General Note:
Every day, Irena is terrified as she serves the violent and rude Nazis who drink in her town’s hotel. They have crushed all resistance, and are determined to destroy her people’s way of life – particularly Richter, a member of the Gestapo with a reputation as frightening as his vicious smile. But if she is to support her family, she has little choice but to face her fears and pray she doesn’t catch the eye of any of the officers… But when Irena is told she must serve Richter personally, she knows she will no longer be able to hide. Trembling, she approaches his table. And when his cold gaze finally settles on her, she realizes that her fate has already been sealed. When Irena falls pregnant, her baby is a small glimmer of hope in an otherwise dark world. But when the baby is taken from her one winter night, she swears that she will stop at nothing to avenge her child’s life…
