New WWII Novel Set in Ukraine

Could you survive in a cave…for a whole year?

That’s the challenge facing fourteen-year-old Stepan. Set in Ukraine during the final months of World War II, THE HIDDEN ROOM is based on the true story of a Jewish family who escapes the Nazi terror by taking refuge in a remote cave. Stepan adjusts to the hardships of living underground and the dangers of night-time adventures outside. Food is scarce. Darkness, bone-chilling cold, and the fear of being captured are constant. But a surprising discovery gives his family reason to hope.

THE HIDDEN ROOM reveals little-known but vivid historical details of Ukraine, including Stalin’s brutal pre-war campaign of forced starvation, known as the Holodomor. You will celebrate the courage of a family who stays positive, even in the face of adversity that threatens their survival.
