My Enemy's Cradle

by Sara Young

How do you survive a world turned upside down by the inhumanity of war? This moving story of the redemptive power of love and courage will inspire tears of pity, but also, in an unexpected twist of plot, hope for the human spirit.


Ilse stepped to her dresser and picked up a photograph in an oval frame, gazed at it. 'I'm a coward. Yes. I look away. I don't allow myself to think about certain things. I can't. It would kill me. So this is how I survive. This is how everyone I know survives, except we can't even talk about it. We're all cowards.'
