Salt to the Sea

This story intertwined the lives of several different young people - all trying to escape the Russian invaders. They all had their reasons for fleeing the enemy. They all suffered guilt, bereavement, loss and fear. However, as their story unfolds there is also a great sense of hope. This book was written by Ruta Sepetys as a work of historical fiction but many of the facts are real. The sinking of the Wilhelm Gustoloff by 3 torpedoes in World War II did happen. This is the story of those few who survived.
