About the Book

Greece fought a bitter civil war during the 1940s. A great portion of the people supported the existing system of government with its king as the head of state. The rest of them strove to eliminate the king and convert Greece into a communistic nation. Children between eight and fifteen-years of age from northern Greece became victims of this madness. Thousands of them were rounded up by the communist faction and sent to camps behind the Iron Curtain. Fotis and Georgia, fifteen-year-old siblings, had lost their parents at the start of the war and were living under the care of one of their neighbors. They, along with forty-six other children from the same village, were rounded up by the leftist rebels and chaperoned to one of the many concentration camps in nations outside of Greece within countries beyond the Iron Curtin. There, they were cared for by strangers and taught the principles of communism. Three years later, the twins were separated from each other and their divernt journeys of hardship and pain continue. The twins naver gave up searching for each other and at last their odyssey comes to a gripping and emotional conclusion.
