Destitute after her mother is raped and murdered by Russian soldiers, young Ludmelia Kudirka joins the farmers who traded pitchforks for guns to fight the Soviet army in 1944. Rich with scenes and legends of Lithuania, Amber Wolf tells the little-known tale of a people struggling for their freedom against great odds. In this WW II thriller, Ursula Wong gells the turmoil of war into the saga of a family torn apart by the Soviet occupation.
"Amber Wolf is a trek into territory that, seventy years after the dramatic events enacted there, still remains largely unexplored. Ursula Wong, using new source material and careful research, has crafted a harrowing, heroic, and at times poetic, tale of people caught up in the cataclysms of war. "
-David Daniel, author of The Skelly Man and The Marble Kite
"Amber Wolf is a compelling story of bold resistance in the face of insurmountable odds. Wong skillfully paints a portrait of the hidden and mostly forgotten people who struggled to survive behind the front lines of the cataclysm of World War II."
-Guntis Goncarovs, author of Telmenu Saimnieks – The Lord of Telmeni and Convergence of Valor
