***FINALIST - The Kindle Book Review Best Indie Books of 2012***
Arnhem, September 1944.
British Parachute Regiment Captain Sammy Parker and his platoon have fought bravely, but it was always a losing battle...the bridge they were sent to capture was unwinnable. After he and his men are forced into cattle trucks and transported across Germany on a three day journey without food or water, Sammy lashes out at an SS officer with brutal and devastating consequences...
Instead of spending the rest of his war as a POW, Sammy is sent to a concentration camp.
Spared an immediate death, he discovers firsthand the full horror of the final solution. Amongst the desperation and destitution of the camp, he encounters Naomi, a Jewish housewife from Dresden. Having seen her family murdered, Naomi has learned to survive by making the most unimaginable sacrifices. She is the woman who Sammy will come to depend on to survive himself.
But when the camp is finally liberated, the couple are separated and Sammy embarks on a journey across a continent devastated by war and wracked by ongoing tensions to find out what happened to the woman he loves.
