Days later, 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.

Urve Tamberg grew up in Toronto as the daughter of Estonian immigrant parents. With a BSc.
