Editorial Reviews

Review

“This stunning, heartfelt memoir looks unflinchingly at the scars borne by one Polish immigrant family as their daughter tries to become a normal American girl in Chicago. A gripping study of family dynamics, this is also a must-read for World War II history buffs.”—Leonard Kniffel, author of A Polish Son in the Motherland


“Superbly records the bitter suffering both of victims of the Soviet Gulag and of displaced emigrants. And, we witness the enormous problems of traumatized parents in connecting and sharing their experiences with their American-raised children. In this context, Donna’s teenage ‘tragedy’ of failing to make the cheerleading squad is particularly poignant.”—Marek Jan Chodakiewicz, author of Between Nazis and Soviets


“A primer for all who seek to understand the harrowing journey of Poles during this fateful period.”—Allen Paul, author of Katyń: Stalin’s Massacre and the Triumph of Truth
