In this family saga, love and loss are bound together by a country always at war.

In 1915, Lukia Mazurets, a Ukrainian farmwife, delivers her eighth child while her husband is serving in the Tsar's army. Soon after, she and her children are forced to flee the invading Germans. Over the next fourteen years, Lukia must rely on her wits and faith to survive life in a refugee camp, the ravages of a typhus epidemic, the Bolshevik revolution, unimaginable losses, and one daughter's forbidden love.

Sunflowers Under Fire is a heartbreakingly intimate novel that illuminates the strength of the human spirit. Based on the true stories of her grandmother's ordeals, author Diana Stevan captures the voices of those who had little say in a country that is still being fought over.

A fictionalization based upon the author’s grandmother’s history in the Ukraine that tear at the heartstrings. This story will hook you and you’ll cheer Lukia’s every success and mourn her losses. This is a fabulous, but emotional read.

This novel is based on Stevan's grandmother, Lukia. The entire book broke my heart. It may not be for you if you want a light story. This story is full of devastation, but it is also very beautiful. While it is not easy to get through because it is such an emotional story, I highly recommend grabbing a copy.
