At the brink of the Russian Civil War, the German Mennonites held the economic power in south-eastern Ukraine. At 15, Katarina had grand dreams for her life. But as war approaches, she suddenly finds herself thrust into a world of uncertainty. As rebel gangs threaten the German farmers, the option of emigration is offered.
In 1952, Germany: Katarina’s adopted son, Peter, finds her diaries in the post-war rubble in Munich. Knowing little about his parents’ past, he peruses her journal. But since the diaries are written in Russian and Gothic German, he solicits the help of a historian and book editor to help him make sense of the story.
