In Book I: main character, Maria Kotyk, was born in western Ukraine. In 1940, she graduated from medical school in France and after engagement to a noble Frenchman arrived home. Dramatic political changes in her native land and tragedy of Nazi occupation pushed Maria in a whirlpool of vicious events. With Jewish people she was transported to concentration camp, "as a raw material" for Nazi experiments. Maria avoided execution, but she went through cruel torments and life-threatening ordeals. She prayed and God saved her. In Book II: a new visit to Ukraine in 1946 started for a pregnant Maria and her husband with tortures in NKVD (pre-KGB). Innocent couple was sentenced for 12 years of imprisonment in Siberia where their first son was born and kept for 10 years. They released the family from the camps, but did not issue them French passports and forbad their return to France. Her husband was murdered and she and her sons were nearly killed. Maria prayed and God created miracles. In Book III: Maria struggled to live, being homeless with kids. In 1962, Maria went to monastery in Moscow where nuns suggested her to meet Leonid Brezhnev, a new leader of the country. He assisted Maria with work authorization and housing. Maria prayed and God helped. Mother Maria described all the events in her diary that I was honored to read. She wanted me, her daughter-in-law, to write a book about God's miracles that happened in lives of regular people.
