An incredible journey with teenagers during WWII with Poland, caught between the Soviets, the Polish Resistance & the Ukrainian Nationalists. A bit bittersweet with everything going on in the world today.

A mesmerizing historical novel of suspense and intrigue about a teenage girl who risks everything to save her missing brother.
Poland, July 1944. Sixteen-year-old Maria is making her way home after years of forced labor in Nazi Germany, only to find her village destroyed and her parents killed in a war between the Polish Resistance and Ukrainian nationalists. To Maria’s shock, the local Resistance unit is commanded by her older brother, Tomek―who she thought was dead. He is now a “Silent Unseen,” a special-operations agent with an audacious plan to resist a new and even more dangerous enemy sweeping in from the East.
When Tomek disappears, Maria is determined to find him, but the only person who might be able to help is a young Ukrainian prisoner and the last person Maria trusts―even as she feels a growing connection to him that she can’t resist.
I enjoyed this story immensely, the mission Maria placed herself in to discover the whereabouts of her family and to only discover so much more than what she expected. The bravery shown in these characters is incredible.
