Written by Diane Byler. Growing up in Ukraine at the height of the Soviet Union’s power brought many hardships. From surviving a deadly man-made famine to toiling in a labour camp, Luba faced one challenge after another. But perhaps most unsettling of all were the agonizing questions: Are the communists right? Is there really no God? And if he does exist, where is he? As Luba and her son Sergei and his wife seek answers to these questions, they face discouragement and despair. Sergei is sure that if he could escape the tyranny of communism, he would be happy. But when that doesn’t help, he is desperate. What could be wrong? Slowly God led them to discover the truth. 272 pages; paper; TGS.
