Cilka’s Journey (by Heather Morris) … an emotional journey

What an emotional read! This book covered a part of history that most people are not aware of … Siberian Gulags. The relationships that develop or the conflicts that arise are both touching and angering. You will travel back and forth in time through Cilka’s memories. There are no words strong enough to describe the hardships, the abuse, the brutality that individuals endured, but Cilka and so many others demonstrated an amazing level of strength and determination.

The author does a great job of bringing you into the story, developing the characters, making you feel their pain and hope, and holding your breath as your endure their daily existence.

Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
