Publisher's Summary

A WWII prisoner of war, a resistance heroine and their incredible true story.  

In the heart of Nazi-occupied Europe, two people meet fleetingly in a chance encounter. Josefine Lobnik is a Yugoslav underground resistance fighter, Bruce Murray a New Zealand soldier and prisoner of war. A crumpled note passes between these two strangers and sets them on a course that will change their lives forever. 

This is an extraordinary true account of two ordinary people living through the unimaginable hardship of Hitler's barbaric regime. Woven through their tales of near-impossible coincidences, great bravery, daring escapes, betrayal, torture and retaliation is their remarkable love story that survived against all odds.

Critic Reviews

“An unforgettable love story set in perilous circumstances. It is a reminder that even in the most horrific times love will find a way and ultimately conquer. I can't recommend it enough.” (Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz)

Josephine and her brother and sister were so courageous with the resistance.

How courageous can young teenagers be in such life threatening circumstances. One mistake and the chance of death is so close. Only the lucky can tell the story. Others paid with their lives. Is says nothing about the brutality of both the Germans and Russians soldiers and their leaders.

Bruce was also courageous as a prisoner of war for so long. No wonder these two found love.

Really enjoyed it

I listened to this just about straight through over the weekend. Conrad Colby did a beautiful job of narrating and made it really easy to listen to. the story itself was involving and I felt like I was a fly on the wall watching it all happen.
