Eszter Turján is a mother—and a fanatical underground journalist—living in Budapest at the height of the Cold War. After years of suffering under the communist regime, she’d sacrifice anything, and anyone, to see the government fall. When she manipulates news broadcasts on Radio Free Europe, she ignites the vicious revolution, commits a calamitous murder, and is dragged away screaming to a secret underground prison. Her daughter Dora, then a teenager, cowers in her bedroom as the secret police arrest her mother. Haunted and hurt, Dora vows to work against everything Eszter believes in. But, it’s not that simple. After nine years, Dora is unwittingly drawn back into Eszter’s circle when she falls in love with a Radio Free Europe fan. She finds Eszter, driven mad by years of torture, is headed toward a death sentence. To save her mother, Dora will have to defy a vindictive and lethal regime, and confront family ties she’s spent years denying. On the brink of losing Eszter again, Dora must decide if she should risk her life for the mother who discarded her—or leave it to fate.
