The Runaway Family Diney Costeloe

THE RUNAWAY FAMILY was previously published as EVIL ON THE WIND.

From bestselling author Diney Costeloe, a gritty drama about a mother's struggle to protect her family and escape Nazi persecution in World War Two Germany.

Germany 1937: Fear and betrayal stalk the streets. People disappear. Persecution of the Jews has become a national pastime.

When Ruth Friedman's husband is arrested by the SS, she is left to fend for herself and her four children. She alone stands as their shield against the Nazis. But where can she go? Where will her family be safe?

Ruth must overcome the indifference, hatred and cruelty that surrounds her as she and her family race to escape the advancing Nazi army's final solution.

What readers are saying about THE RUNAWAY FAMILY:

'A powerful and moving account of the dark era of Germany's history ... A story which needed to be told and should be read by people of all ages'

'I personally loved this book ... A harrowing insight into the lives of a young Jewish family at the beginning of Hitler's reign of terror ... A sound reminder of man's inhumanity to man!'

'My university studies had to go on hold for a while because I couldn't put it down!'

'Another great story by Diney Costeloe'
