Mila 18: A Novel (Mass Market)
From the brilliant storyteller who gave us Exodus, QB VII, The Haj, and Mitla Pass
It was a time of crisis, a time of tragedy—and a time of transcendent courage and determination. Leon Uris's blazing novel is set in the midst of the ghetto uprising that defied Nazi tyranny, as the Jews of Warsaw boldly met Wehrmacht tanks with homemade weapons and bare fists. Here, painted on a canvas as broad as its subject matter, is the compelling of one of the most heroic struggles of modern times.
“Not only authentic as history . . . it is convincing as fiction. . . . The story of a sacrifice that had real meaning and will forever be remembered . . . A fine and important novel!”—The New York Times

While Dolssa runs from those who would burn her at the stake as a heretic, fellow travelers must decide whether to hide her or turn her in. The author makes you believe you're in pre-Inquisition Provence and the story adn characters stay with you for days afterwards. Powerful story of taking a stand for your beliefs and the makings of friendship. - Nikki
