    Heric true story about survivor of Stalin's purge

    Non-Stop reading about the only US woman to escape Russian prison camps and return home. Be prepared to stay up all night because the 'story' does not stop.

    Take a Unique Look at History

    While I was browsing at the bookstore, I came across a title that piqued my interest: *Dancing Under the Red Star* by Karl Tobien. I've been reading about Stalin in my history class, and I thought maybe this book would give me a little more insight into the lives of the people who actually had to live under Stalin's reign. With the description, "The Extraordinary Story of Margaret Werner, the Only American Woman to Survive Stalin's Gulag," this book had to be good.

    This story is fascinating, and Margaret's account of her father's capture, her own exile, and growing faith is encouraging. At times I put the book down, not believing that this could have happened to such innocent people. But the story's depth and insight forced me to continue until I had devoured every last paragraph.

    This true story is encouraging, inspiring, heart breaking, and intense. It is the story of a young girl growing into womanhood, a doubter growing in faith. Reading this book is a unique way to learn about history.
