Fifteen-year-old Lina is a Lithuanian girl living an ordinary life -- until Soviet officers invade her home and tear her family apart. Separated from her father and forced onto a crowded train, Lina, her mother, and her young brother make their way to a Siberian work camp, where they are forced to fight for their lives. Lina finds solace in her art, documenting these events by drawing. Risking everything, she imbeds clues in her drawings of their location and secretly passes them along, hoping her drawings will make their way to her father's prison camp. But will strength, love, and hope be enough for Lina and her family to survive?

A moving and haunting novel perfect for readers of The Book Thief.

Though many reports about World War II but a few knowing about what kind of Baltics people going through during the annex.

in mankind. My favorite character is Elena Vilkas (Lina's mother)--she remains calm throughout the roundup of her family. She retains her dignity, kindness, and dying in elegant manner. She always belive there is no such thing like pure evil. Humanity is always in gray form. This book tells us about hope and love. Love is something that you have to keep no matter its cost.

We survived through love such as love for country, love for parent and vice versa, and love of God. Elena, Lina, Jonas, and other Lithunians people believe that love for humanity still exist and they can survive from hell.

I've never been into historical fiction before, but this book is definitely exceptional. It's not normally something I'd read and I am glad I did pick up this book. Really unforgettable!

makes me appreciate the whole story because it is easy to understand. Despite the heavy and dark story, I found myself captivated till the very end.

Like a light at the end of a dark dark tunnel. Absolutely beautiful.
