One night fifteen-year-old Lina, her mother and young brother are hauled from their home by Soviet guards, thrown into cattle cars and sent away. They are being deported to Siberia.

A hefty emotional punch' New York Times 'Her prose is restrained and powerful, as unadorned as the landscape in which her characters struggle to survive...
