Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Miss May
Strength in the face of adversity…
In 1924, author Jerrard Tickell embarked on an adventure to Hungry.
It was there that he met the young Englishwoman, Mary Allison Walters.
Mary was the British wife of Baron Jenő Miske-Gerstenberger – the Hungarian consul-general in Munich and Istanbul.
This unassuming woman became a special operations executive during WWII and was responsible for smuggling top secret documents into Hungary.
However, her luck soon ran out when she was caught and given the death penalty.
Somehow, she managed to escape, only to be suddenly abducted and imprisoned once again.
And this time she was in a Soviet camp in the middle of the frozen artic, forced to battle against the terrible conditions every day in order to survive.
This shocking true story was recounted to Tickell through letters almost 50 years later, revealing how years of happiness can be torn to tatters by the brutality of war.
This is the story of inspirational Miss May.
