The prisoner's wife

Brookes, Maggie2020
Books, Manuscripts
In the dead of night a farm girl and a British soldier creep through abandoned villages. Izabela and POW Bill have secretly married and are on the run, searching for Izabela's brother and father, who are fighting the Nazis. They've evaded capture for a week, but when their luck runs out, they are delivered into the hands of the occupying enemy, the German army. But they have prepared for this moment. Izabela's hair has been shorn and, pretending to be unable to speak, she is assumed to be a mute young British soldier. The pair are transported to a POW camp and faced with living conditions far worse than those experienced by any animal on Izabela's farm. They will need the help of their fellow POWs to maintain their deception, and the gravity of the situation becomes chillingly apparent; if they are discovered, Izabela will have put not just herself and Bill in great danger, but also all the men around them.
