In the heart of Nazi-occupied Europe, two people meet fleetingly in a chance encounter. One is an underground resistance fighter; the other a prisoner of war.

In this true love story that defies all odds, Josefine Lobnik, a Yugoslav partisan heroine, and Bruce Murray, a New Zealand soldier, discover love in the midst of a brutal war. Bruce lived in New Zealand when WWII started. He had a good job and loved to go out drinking with his two best friends. They joined the Army as a chance to see the world but when they finally got into combat, it was another story. Bruce got captured by the Germans and was sent to a POW camp. The living conditions were not the best but they were able to get packages from the Red Cross and mail from home. When Bruce was walking around the compound on a Sunday, a woman approached the barbed wire and passed him a note asking for help finding her brother. That woman was Josefine Lobnik, an underground resistance fighter who was fighting for freedom from the Germans. After several unsuccessful escapes, Bruce was assigned to work on a local farm. By chance, it is the farm of Josefine's aunt and uncle, where she is hiding because she's been betrayed and has a price on her head. They begin to talk and fall in love. This is a story about finding love during the war and their struggles to be together. They both face torture, betrayal and sacrifice along with way but eventually love wins!

Be sure to read the author's notes at the end about their life after the war. He also mentions the letters that they kept that shows how difficult it was for them to be together after the war ended. ( )

Bruce Murray, a New Zealander in his early 20's, finds himself captured after fighting with the NZ Expeditionary Force in Greece. He becomes a POW, escapes, and is returned to a POW camp on each occasion. He meets a young Slovenian woman, Josefine, then only 18 years of age. She is supporting the Partisans in her country and is also trying to find one of her brothers. They meet again some time later and love blossoms in the most trying of wartime conditions. Despite the appalling reality of their, at times, terrible experiences, they commit themselves to each other and this strong love and commitment gets them through to the end of the war. The author based his story on a large collection of letters between Bruce and Josefine, and other factual information, including war records and newspaper reports, and created a great book, which I found hard to put down, especially towards the end.
