"A devoted and brilliant achievement." The New York Review of Books

In 1948, as civil war ravaged Greece, children were abducted and sent to communist "camps" behind the Iron Curtain. Eleni Gatzoyiannis, 41, defied the traditions of her small village and the terror of the communist insurgents to arrange for the escape of her three daughters and her son, Nicola. For that act, she was imprisoned, tortured, and executed in cold blood. Nicholas Gage joined his father in Massachusetts at the age of nine and grew up to be a top investigative reporter for the New York Times. And finally he returned to Greece to uncover the story he cared about most -- the story of his mother's heroic life and tragic death.

Review:

"A devoted and brilliant achievement. One of the rare books in which the power of art recreates the historical truth" ( New York Review of Books)

"Exciting and harrowing... An amazing achievement" (Patrick Leigh Fermor)

"I cannot think of another book that so compellingly demonstrates the gradual deterioration of human values in the name of lofty goals. Minutely observed and eloquently rendered" ( New York Times)

From the Publisher:

‘Not only a son’s poignant memorial to his dead mother but an important work of history’ Observer
