Anya Taraslov’s beliefs have been shattered, her world turned upside down. Everything she thought she knew about life comes into question behind the rows of high fences and barbed wire surrounding the camp. In the midst of a brutal winter, Anya struggles to survive.
Enric Fitz is no stranger to cruelty. After being injured on the front line, the decorated lieutenant helps to run Auschwitz with an iron fist. His mere presence is enough to evoke fear among inmates and tense caution in staff. When Anya stumbles under his watchful eye during roll call, the former Russian’s fate seems sealed.
This is no sugar-coated tale. It’s a harrowing story of humanity and the loss there-of. Anya and Enric learn that the power of compassion is a devastating force. It can mend some people while tearing others apart. For once you discover there are two sides to every coin, every story, every war … life can no longer be defined in black and white, but in a series of muted grays.
Compassion is a work-in-progress. While the first few chapters are available to the public, the remainder will be kept under passkey until completion. As I warned, it is not a story for the faint of heart. If you find you are interested in reading on, send me a note to let me know.
