Six Sugar Beets Five Bitter Years
By 1950 the Communist worker’s paradise in Kyrgyzstan had not become reality. Communal farming was a dismal failure.

Mia’s family lost their house and land; her husband—a preacher who had spoken out against injustices—was sent to prison, and died there.

Her faith in God’s promises saved her from utter despair when she faced the loss of her children, and gave her hope to endure five years in the labour camps.
