New Novel Depicts Mistreatment of German-Russian Civilians under Stalin’s Rule Prior to WWII: …Like Footprints in the Wind /A Generation Lost by Pamela Atherstone
November 30, 2012.
This is the saga of the German-Russian farm people, overwhelmed by the conflicts of heritage, politics and religion in 1929. It is a story of faith. It is a tale of love and adventure set against the backdrop of political change, and the progressive disintegration of a tight-knit family at the hands of Soviet repression. It is a tragic story full of deceit and pain, love and redemption. This book is rich in narrative and detail of rural Russian culture during the pre-WWII era of “The Purge of the Kulaks."
When Johannes and Katerina Jahnle, and their two oldest daughters, are incarcerated in Siberian labor camps, the younger children are left to fend for themselves. The story journeys with Anya, their ten-year-old daughter, who is selected by Sonia, an elderly disabled woman, to assist with her daily needs. Sonia takes Anya deep into the forest where she teaches the child a new way of life. Here, Anya learns to be courageous and brave, as time passes and Sonia’s health fails.
Through a set of circumstances guided only by the hand of God, Anya is reunited with her father, and together they set out across the vastness of the Russian steppe searching for freedom.
