A Times Book of the Year, 2019
THE SECOND WORLD WAR IS OVER. BUT THE WORLD IS FAR FROM SAFE.
As victorious Russian troops sweep across East Prussia, a group of desperate children face a new battle. Confronted by critical food shortages and the onset of a bitterly cold winter, these 'wolf children' secretly cross the border into Lithuania in search of work or food to take back to their starving families. In a world still reeling from the devastation of war, the children must risk everything to survive.
In the Shadow of Wolves is a story of resilience, devastation and, ultimately, hope. Based on meticulous research, Alvydas Slepikas's stunningly powerful debut novel has won over readers and critics across the world.
