About the book: In a bombed-out Polish village during World War II a young resistance fighter finds that he is suddenly alone and trapped between two opposing armies. He is one of Poland's "Devil's Rebels" fighting desperately to save his homeland, but an injury has erased his memory and his only possession is a torn photograph of a couple he assumes are his parents. The woman appears to be holding the hand of a young child whose image has been ripped off. Could the child be him?

Caught in the crosshairs of the retreating German army and the advancing Russian forces, the village holds nothing but destruction and despair until a mysterious young woman offers a small glimmer of hope that may represent his last chance - news of a refuge train departing from a nearby town headed for American installations at the border. But complications arise when the resistance fighter is betrayed by his own countryman and hunted by German SS Officers who are determined to kill him before they retreat. Desperately searching for a home and family he can't remember he is persuaded to rescue two children who are doomed to die without his help.

As time runs out the former rebel is faced with an impossible choice. Standing at the crossroads of saving himself or risking his life for strangers, what would motivate a young man at the brink of salvation to make one more sacrifice?

My review: I was thrilled to get to review this book! Chris Steward is the congressman who represents my district in the house. And I was able to meet him a couple of months ago when he talked to a group of young people in our area. I was really impressed with the person that he is. He is honest, and kind. I really enjoyed listening to him talk about his life, he is a truly interesting and remarkable person.

Anyway...on to the book! This book sucked me in, I have to tell you a funny story about when I was reading it. I was reading it when my daughter got her braces done the other day, and usually I have a hard time focusing on books during those appointments. The doctor is always in and out and there are tons of loud things going on around you. I was reading this one and I was so involved in what was happening in the story that I didn't even notice that the doctor had left my daughter's station and was on to whatever else he was doing. This book is amazing!

The plot line is one that I hadn't yet seen as a World War II novel and I was super amazed at the devastation and trials that the Polish people faced. It makes me think just how blessed we really are when I read about things like this. 

I liked the characters, and the way that they interacted. There's Lucas, the rebel who is being hunted. Muller, the hunter. Cela and Aron, the kids that Lucas gets roped into helping. And Melina, the beautiful young lady who helps Lucas and the kids. I really loved the ending, not that you really know what happens to the characters, but the way it's just beautiful and I could really imagine my own lives for these characters that I'd cared for as I read this book.
