Eastern Europe, 1944: Taken from their husbands, three pregnant women—Priska, Anka, and Rachel—are sent to Auschwitz. Having concealed their condition from infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, they are forced to work and almost starved to death, living in daily fear of their pregnancies being detected by the SS. In April 1945, as the Allies close in, the women are sent to another camp, and in this "astonishing and deeply moving" account (Booklist), they will need a miracle to survive.
"Even though it occurred more than 70 years ago, the story's truth is so chillingly portrayed that it seems as if it could have happened recently…. An engrossing, intense, and highly descriptive narrative."—Kirkus Reviews
