Summary
Zosia has sacrificed herself to save her dying son from the Gestapo. She takes his place as a prisoner and is sent to work as a slave in Germany, where the only thing keeping her alive is the hope of her children’s survival. Once World War II ends, her goal, like any mother, is to return to Poland and the children she left behind. Instead, she’s collected into a DP camp in Wildflecken, Germany, to wait for stability in Poland. She digs for clues about her family but finds the truth impossible to uncover. Zosia is trapped in a never-ending purgatory. Despite her initial resistance, she falls in love with Czeslaw, who uses his black market network to help her. When Zosia becomes pregnant, Czeslaw offers the promise of a new life but refuses to return to Poland and the tragedy he left behind. The refugee camps are closing and time is running out. Zosia is faced with a decision: return to the ruins of Poland alone to find her older children, or follow Czeslaw in his chase after a better future for their fragile new family
