Publisher's Summary

Deep in an Estonian forest, two women - one young, one old - are hiding. Zara is a prostitute and a murderer, on the run from brutal captors, men who know about inflicting punishment. Aliide offers refuge, but not safety: She has her own secrets, traitorous crimes of passion and revenge committed long ago, during the country’s brutal Soviet years.
Both women have suffered lives of abuse. But this time their survival depends on revealing the one thing history has taught them to keep safely hidden: the truth. A haunting, intimate and gripping story of suspicion, betrayal and retribution against a backdrop of Soviet oppression and European war.

Well written and interesting

But if I was honest I was a little bored with this. For the 1st time I wish I had listened to an abridged version. The characters were interesting, though a little stereotypical, and the history and story were told well. Just it lacked pace, which may have been the intention, and failed to draw me in. I found that I did not really care about the characters.
