They should have been bitter enemies; and yet the fall passionately in love. It cannot last, and Misha must flee the country as Tonya faces arrest and possibly worse.
Thirty years later, Misha has survived the War and seeks to rebuild his life in the destroyed city of Berlin. Drawn into spying for the British, he learns of a talented female agent from the Soviet quarter. Can it be his lost love? And how will they find each other, as the divide deepens between East and West?
Intensely dramatic, epic in scope, this is a glorious novel of courage, action, and ultimately undying hope.
