Racing through the mountains, he evades capture by both Nazis and Soviet agents. So when he meets the underground Ukrainian Insurgent Army, he knows that is where he belongs: fighting Nazis and Soviets alike. But the desperate rescues and guerilla raids put Luka back in the line of fire. Can he survive long enough to find Lida again—and make it back home to the father who must be waiting for him?
