Toward Morning

Toward Morning, A Story of the Hungarian Freedom Fighters 1961 Follett Publishing Co. (OP) by Alta Halverson Seymour

Long out of print, Toward Morning, is a gripping and emotional tale of the turbulent days surrounding the Hungarian Revoultion in 1956. We follow Janos, his friends, younger sister Teresa, and younger brother Belo, as they become immersed in the battle for freedom. Since much of the story is based on actual events, the story is all the more intense. Will the Russian soldiers capture and torture their brother for his activities? Where can he hide? After reading this book, you will have a greater appreciation for your freedom.

You may be able to find a copy in your local library. It is defintely worth looking for.

We will have to look for this at our library...we have a daughter adopted from Hungary and my father left Hungary after being captured and held in a prison camp by the Russians during the Cold War.

Thanks for the tip...
