The Betrayal - Helen Dunmore

Andrei, a pediatrician, is coerced into treating the son of a high-ranking secret police officer in Stalin’s government. As Andrei is drawn into the life and fate of his patient, he realizes that the lives of his own family also hang in the balance. When she writes about Andrei's brutal interrogation and dignified stand for truth, Helen Dunmore reminds us that good literature is often the most enduring testament to the painful realities of history. Longlisted for the Booker Prize, this is a compelling and beautifully crafted novel.
