What terrible storms they have in this place, Greta thought, her skin screaming a silent protest, her eyes blind against the driving snow. "Where are we?" she called into the wind, but her words were swept behind her.

In this gripping and moving novel, Greta and her family, treated as "non-existent" along with thousands of Russian Germans, Mennonites, and other ethnic groups displaced by Stalin, struggle to exist in the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1976.

Based on painstaking historical research and interviews with Greta's family, To and From Nowhere tells a harrowing and beautiful story in the unusual style that author Hedy Martens has fused, combining narrative, biography, poetry, history, and personal reflection.
