This novel is inspired by the single greatest tragedy in maritime history--that you never heard about.

4 teenagers, 4 different homelands, 4 unique voices, and 4 heavy burdens--all become intertwined in this novel.  It is 1945 and the Soviets are bearing down on the Baltic region.  Thousands of refugees are seeking passage out.  This is a terrifying, yet beautifully told story of historical fiction.  If you enjoy imagining that you were there, you will love this book.
