In this epic tale of friendship and loss from the author of The Sugar Men, fate pushes childhood friends to opposite sides of a terrible war—but is forgiveness always possible?

Ukraine, 1923. On a small farm, two boys are born within days of each other, both Ukrainian, one Jewish.

The war brings cruelty to both boys. Although Asher finds love in Warsaw, the city is far from the haven his family sought; meanwhile Mykhail becomes a victim of the bitter struggle for Ukraine. But worse follows in the shape of the Treblinka death camp. There, both men must obey orders, and both find their morals compromised and their souls tortured.

Author

Author Bio: Ray Kingfisher

Author Bio: Ray Kingfisher Ray Kingfisher was born and bred in the Black Country in the UK. He wrote a singularly awful novel in the early 1990s, and so concentrated on his IT/engineering career (and renovating a house) for the next fifteen years. In 2009, the urge to write broke through again, and this time he decided to learn how to do it properly. Ray now writes in a few different genres, through indecision and belligerence as much as through choice.
