Descrizione

“This heartwarming story of a Polish family escaping as the Nazis and Communists invade their country reminds us how much courage, determination and sheer grit were needed to survive the dark days of World War Two.”
—Barbara Greenwood, author of fourteen books, including The Last Safe House, A Pioneer Thanksgiving, Factory Girl, A Pioneer Christmas, and Gold Rush Fever.
Ten-year-old Halinka knows that God is in control, but when the Russian and German militaries, under Stalin’s and Hitler’s orders respectively, roar into her country of Poland, she can’t help but be afraid. Within weeks, her terror heightens when she realizes that her family needs to flee their homeland. Ironically, Halinka’s parents know that their best chance of survival rests with an escape to German territory.
Young readers will be riveted to the story of Halinka’s harrowing experiences as author Linda Blain brings to life the horrors and heroism of World War II Europe. Interspersed with historical commentary, Enduring the Empire presents the war through the innocence of childhood while reminding readers that God’s goodness and faithfulness are always victorious.
