  1. Christine

    Amazing story of courage. I was on the edge of my seat the entire story. Very easy to put myself in the writer’s shoes as the story unfolds. A good reminder on what communism does. Excellent story!

  2. Virginia L Chapman

    Well written personal account of a true story, one that chilled me when I read it. I wondered if I would have been that courageous and willing to risk prison to help a desperate family member. The thirst for freedom for a loved one took them to risk all. You will be changed reading this book.

  3. Cathy C

    What an remarkable story! The author writes with intelligent and impassioned descriptions of her experiences inside a Hungarian prison, after a very scary and suspenseful attempt to free family from East Germany. I could not put the book down!

  4. Vi Tradal

    A true and suspenseful story. How quickly we forget the horrors of communism and the experience of this family is a good education for our younger generation to give thought to. It is a story of love of family that risks their own lives to free family left behind; a story of of great courage in the face of much ugliness in prison. I have become friends with this loving, caring, compassionate, strong woman and her husband. They put their beliefs into action in this true account and their lives today. Must read!
