Description

Driven from Ukraine by Russia in early 2022, author Sergey Maidukov and his family joined millions of refugees trying to piece together their lives in the wake of Putin’s war. Rich with emotion, the story follows their flight to Poland and eventual return to Kyiv, as they search for moments of love, courage, and hope.

This memoir is a firsthand glimpse into the lives of Ukrainians through one family’s story. Sergey Maidukov, with gravity and passion, tells the story of how he escaped Ukraine along with his wife, daughter, and granddaughter in February 2022, their second displacement by Russia’s terror. With stories of family, hardship, hope, and fear, the author has captured a journey that has revealed much more than suffering; it has taken them to new levels of patriotism, new values, and a new appreciation for their home country.

Sergey Maidukov is a Ukrainian writer who has sold tens of thousands of copies of his published books in the countries of the former USSR, such as Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and the Baltics.

Widely recognized in Western Europe for his intimate knowledge of the criminal world, he worked for 22 years as a commissioned writer for the largest publishing houses in Russia and Ukraine.
