Read full description of the books:
Striking storylines and images fill this classic memoir by Katie Funk Wiebe. There are the "four corpses in the house in two weeks" and the "smoking, ravaged town of Brodi on the Austrian border", where "horror faced them on all sides". There is the experience of Wiebe's father, for whom "church affairs seemed to fall into the category of either loveless power or powerless love". There are the "hunger years" and the trek from Russia to Canada.
