It’s World War II and Ludwika Gierz, a young Polish woman, is forced to leave her family and go to Nazi Germany to work for an SS officer. There, she must walk a tightrope, learning to live as a second-class citizen in a world where one wrong word could spell disaster and every day could be her last. Based on real events, this is a story of hope amid despair, of love amid loss . . . ultimately, it’s one woman’s story of survival.
Ludwika was voted No. 14 in The Readfreely “Self Published Books Worth Reading 2016” poll. It was chosen as finalist in the Discovery wards, Historical Fiction Category, won the Metamorph Publishing Award for Best Historical Fiction, and the Historical Novel Society review named it “a gripping and ultimately very poignant story”.
