About the book
Who can you turn to when the only choice is between two evils? In the summer of 1941, fifteen-year-old Madli hopes that the Soviet occupation of Estonia is temporary. But when the Nazis invade her country, friends and family find themselves divided as they try to choose which dictator they'd rather live under — Hitler or Stalin. Madli is horrified by either choice, but how long can she remain neutral? Every day brings new dangers and unimaginable decisions. In order to survive, Madli knows she can't fight the enemy, so she is determined to outwit them to save her family.
About the Author
Urve Tamberg grew up in Toronto as the daughter of Estonian immigrant parents. With a B.Sc. (Physical Therapy), and a M.B.A., her management career spanned both the private and public sectors of health care. Urve has always been inspired by little-known stories of stubbornness, ingenuity, and bravery, so a few years ago she began to write historical fiction for teens. Urve lives in Oakville, Ontario, with her husband, three children, and a little black dog named Shimmer.
