Book Image Not Available
Overview
When a young American woman visits Prague in 1938 for a month-long vacation she has no idea of what lies ahead. Due to unforeseen circumstances, she is stranded and unable to leave, her visit is extended to 1939, when the city is invaded by Germany. Her Exploits become far more complex than the simple visit of a tourist. She is desperate to leave and enters a dangerous liaison for her survival. She finds instincts she never knew she had-and a strength she never knew she'd need.

About the author
Ingrid Wolsk was born in New York City. A lonely childhood engendered a longing for adventure and travels, which she chased in her poems and short stories. When the opportunity presented itself at last, she spent ten years living abroad, working both in and out of the arts and theater world, and absorbing experiences to put in her writing. She has two daughters and lives outside of Seattle, Washington. Ingrid is now working on her second novel, “Camp Henley”, and has published a flash fiction piece called “A Screech of Warning” under the name Ingrid Andersen. “The Secret of Anja” is her first novel.
