★TRIPLE AWARD FINALIST- TOP SHELF, READER'S FAVORITE, AND BOOK EXCELLENCE★
An overnight prison. One chance to escape. Who will pay the price?
13 August 1961.
Nationale Volksarmee soldiers roll barbed wire across a war-torn city—families are separated, livelihoods destroyed, and death comes easily as crippling fear paralyzes the occupants of both sides of the Berlin Wall. In one fate-driven moment, fifteen-year-old Ella Kühn must make the agonizing decision to remain with her dying father or flee with her brother and best friend to the West.
Caught in the crossfire of duty and survival, Ella’s enforced occupation exposes her to the evil workings of the secret police and the deadly plans of a destructive regime. Torn between loyalty and temptation, she seeks comfort in the belief she will be reunited with one man, while another challenges her heart.
Will Ella risk her life for freedom? Or will her restless soul find contentment in the shadows of East Berlin?
Ensnare, the first book in the "Berlin Butterfly" series, is a story of life, love, survival, and the struggle of living through the early years of the Berlin Wall. Readers will be captivated by Ella's strength, determination, and vulnerability as she opens her heart amidst a dangerous and terrifying journey.
