Living Under German Occupation During World War II

Any association with partisans can lead to death under Nazi occupation. And teenager Natalya has forged a very close link indeed.

When her lover, and secret husband, is betrayed and ambushed, she must flee her home in Ukraine to avoid endangering the lives of her mother and sisters.
Transported to Germany as forced labour, she hides in plain sight among her enemies where she performs the role of the obedient maid.

But as the Reich begins to crumble under the weight of the Allied onslaught, Natalya must take more dangerous and arduous work alongside other slave labourers in German armaments factories.
Will they survive to be liberated? And what fate will freedom hold for Natalya and the thousands of other displaced persons awash in post-war Europe?
Driven Into Exile is the second book in the My Lost Country series but it is a complete story in itself. Certain characters reappear from the first novel, When Sorrows Come, and different lives are revealed.
