Overview

"Just because we are still living while others have died before our eyes does not mean that we are any smarter than they are. All it means is that we are luckier. Don’t ever forget that."

May 1931. Iwan and Petro’s world was spun into chaos. In a small Ukrainian village, the two brothers had lived a simple existence under the watchful eyes of their parents...until the day the dark cloud of the Communist regime put its stranglehold on the village. The brothers were forced to execute a deliberate act of defiance that would forever change their young lives.

To earn life, they first had to die.

Driven nearly to the limits of human suffering, life on the run for the two brothers meant traversing hundreds of miles of snow-capped mountain ranges in a tattered wagon. Along the way, they encountered bridges collapsing, gypsy lifesavers, a naked guardian angel, Communist revenge, and even a little bit of romance along the route of the hunted. Their fate lay on the delicate power of fraying human emotions...not just theirs, but everyone’s around them.

Unimaginable odds, an unforgettable journey and an unbelievable true story of perseverance, finding the will to live and courage in the face of death.

TALABARSKE is the American dream. It's a true story of perseverance, of finding the will to live, of discovering courage in the face of death...all against unimaginable odds.

TALABARSKE proves that anything is possible—because life is on your side.
