Summary"Hiding from the Nazis in the forests of Slovakia’s Low Tatra Mountains in the fall of 1944, in constant danger from the Germans occupying nearby villages, fourteen-year-old Agnes Grossmann and her family made the daring decision to escape high into the mountains and hike along treacherous ice-covered peaks to safety. Twenty-four years later, Agnes Tomasov—then married with two children—found herself on the run from post-war Czechoslovakia’s Communist regime and defected to Canada with her family, carrying only what they could fit in two suitcases." —Publisher
