The Girl from the Mountains
1942, Czechoslovakia: Gently, Magda lowered the sleeping infant down into the tiny, dark space beneath the floor. She quickly replaced the boards. In the garden, doors slammed, voices shouted in German, then dogs began barking… A heart-breaking wartime epic of love, bravery, survival and one young woman’s exceptional courage, set against the backdrop of wild and beautiful forests and mountains.
When the Gestapo arrive to arrest Magda’s kind, Jewish employers—Dr Tauber and his talented wife—she has only moments to save their newborn son Samuel.
With the Taubers gone, their alpine villa is taken over by a brutal Nazi commander, who is determined to hunt down Resistance fighters in the mountains. Trapped in the house, Magda manages to get Samuel into hiding with her friends in the Resistance. Magda supports the cause, passing coded messages about the commander’s activities and smuggling much-needed supplies to their secret network.
Magda is playing a dangerous game and it isn’t only her life on the line. And she will need to risk more than she ever thought possible to keep Samuel safe…
