Natia has a secret, and she’s hiding him right beneath her captor’s nose...

The Nazis have forced Natia and Teodor from their Polish farm to a labor camp. When the couple is separated, Natia is chosen to be the housekeeper for the camp’s overseer, and Teodor is sent to work in the factory. Despite the strict camp rules—and the consequences for disobeying them—Natia finds a way to communicate with Teodor by sending messages through song as she passes Teodor’s dormitory.

The stakes get higher when Natia finds a Jewish orphan on the overseer’s doorstep. She is determined to protect the boy and raise him as the child she and her husband were unable to bear— but if her German captors discover how much she’s hiding, both she and Teodor may pay the ultimate price.  


People crowded the tiny station and spilled onto the cobblestone street. The sweetness of ladies’ perfume mingled with the sourness of unwashed farmers. German soldiers patrolled the area with rifles over their shoulders and dogs straining on leashes.

“You there.” One with dark eyes and a downturned mouth hollered at them. “Papers.”

The group stopped and produced what the man demanded. Natia pressed against Teodor.

The Nazi stared at the triangular patch on their coats. “Get in the station. Schnell, schnell. There isn’t time to waste.”

A train whistle bellowed. Teodor jumped, and Natia sucked in a breath. He squeezed her shoulder.

“I’ve never seen so many people in one place at a time.” The chaos of voices filled her head. Women and children cried. Men shouted. Their captors yelled louder. Schnell was the only word she could decipher. Hurry.

To what? An uncertain fate?
