The life he was born into was too small for Adam. But would escaping Hungary cost him everything?
Based on a true story, this is the epic tale of a young man’s survival as the world plunged into the darkest days of WW2.
Growing up in an isolated village in eastern Hungary between the great wars, Adam couldn’t remember a time he hadn’t yearned for more excitement, more freedom, and often more food. Locked up for theft at age nine, Adam’s life took one tumultuous turn after another as Hitler plunged Europe into war.
From a 12-year-old runaway searching for food, to a 15-year-old shivering in the mud of a frozen foxhole on the Eastern Front, Adam’s survival hung in the balance. When a Russian bullet found it’s mark, Adam was catapulted into a series of captures and narrow escapes from enemy forces while Europe reeled from the final destruction and horror of WW2.
Never standing still, Adam struggled through war-torn landscapes to find his family, and began to build a life from the ashes, until the results of a medical examination at an American Embassy in Germany changed the course of his future forever.

Born into a remote Mennonite community in northern British Columbia, Canada, Roxi spent her childhood surrounded by hardworking farmers, loggers, and good-hearted small town people. Curiosity about what lay beyond the horizon, and hunger for bigger challenges drew her away after high school, but the grounding and appreciation of that simple beginning remain at her core. Roxi feeds her soul by discovering new things, whether they be found on distant shores or curled up in the swinging chair on the porch of her cabin, lost in a story well told. She lives on Okanagan Lake, in British Columbia, Canada.
