    Book synopsis: The peaceful farm life of a teenage girl in Germany is abruptly upended when WWII comes knocking at her family's door. One month before her 16th birthday, Mildred and her family are captured by Russian soldiers. Having already survived life in Hitler's Nazi Germany, they now face the terror of a new enemy - Stalin's Red Army.
    From harrowing to heartwarming, this memoir provides a unique perspective of a young girl's road to resilience and her fortitude against all odds to forge a life filled with love and laughter. The story is a remarkable testimony to the strength of the unconquerable human spirit and an endearing account of God's faithfulness in the midst of faithless circumstances.
