In an adventure-filled companion to Angel on the Square, National Book Award winner Gloria Whelan recreates the hardships and horrors of 1930s communist Russia, through the eyes of two brave, resourceful young heroes.

Faced with the prospect of orphanages and separation from each other, the children decide they must do whatever it takes to make the impossible journey in search of their parents.

Professional reviews

"When her parents are arrested in the middle of the night and sent to Siberia, Marya must show determination and strength beyond her 13 years as she cares for herself and Georgi, her little brother. Set in Russia in 1934, the story is a glimpse into the lives of people under Stalin's repressive leadership. Marya and Georgi fight fear, hunger, and the elements as they travel over a thousand miles of difficult terrain to join their parents. Julie Dretzin's warm, gentle voice reveals Marya's moments of fear and hopefulness as she finds kindness and treachery along the way. Georgi, brave, but also appropriately whiny, is easily distinguished. Dretzin delicately and deftly handles the Russian names and words. F.L.F. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
