In Massachusetts in the 1700s, Deborah Sampson was a 'give-away child'. When her parents could no longer look after her, she was passed around to live with several different people. She finally became an indentured servant to Deacon Thomas and his family until she turned eighteen. Although she was a servant in each place, she also learned to read and write. After her eighteenth birthday, a disgusting man insisted she marry him. To escape him, she dressed as a boy, ran away and finally enlisted in the army to fight in the Revolutionary War. In the army, Deborah discovers the horrors of war but also discovers the joys of friendship. Deborah tells her true story of adventure, deception, war and honor. You won't be able to put it down.

In 1942, in the village of Lidice, Czechoslovakia, 11-year-old Milada has just celebrated her birthday with her loving family. Though the village is under Nazi rule and food is in short supply, the family is happy. Then, in the middle of the night soldiers suddenly burst into their home and herd the family to a school gym to await further orders. They are separated, and Milada is taken to a center in Poland, where she is retrained to be a perfect German citizen, because her features are what the Nazis consider the Aryan ideal. After two years, she is adopted by a high ranking German officer and his family. Based on true events, it is the story of love and loss and the many emotions in between.
