The Forest of Vanishing Stars, Paperback / softback Book

The Forest of Vanishing Stars Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Yona has used her knowledge of the wilderness to help hundreds of Jews escape the Nazis.

But what happens when a secret from her past emerges and threatens everything?

After being stolen from her wealthy German parents and raised in the unforgiving wilderness of eastern Europe, a young woman finds herself alone in 1941 after her kidnapper dies. Her solitary existence is interrupted, however, when she happens upon a group of Jews fleeing the Nazi terror.

Stunned to learn what's happening in the outside world, she vows to teach the group all she can about surviving in the forest - and in turn, they teach her some surprising lessons about opening her heart after years of isolation. But when she is betrayed and escapes into a German-occupied village, her past and present come together in a shocking collision that could change everything. Praise for Kristin Harmel: 'A powerful story of survival and resilience.
