** SIGNED COPY ** Brand New, Beautiful and Unread First Edition/1st Printing (Numberline to "1"), Personally hand-signed by burgeoning master of Historical Fiction, Ruta Sepetys, directly to the Full Title Page--This is NOT one of the Publisher's tipped-in Pre-Signed copies--at a Local Appearance, here in California. Garnering lots of immediate Buzz and a number of starred reviews--including from Publishers Weekly--this memorable, reality-based tale of Wartime tragedy and cruelly twisted fate on the high seas is, in our humble opinion, destined for greater renown, higher honors, and ultimate transformation into a blockbuster cinematic presence. Due to a brief schedule of author appearances, the book is Very Uncommon Signed, and thus bound to be eminently collectible. As so many contemporary winners dipped from the creative wellsprings of today's Young Adult literature, "Salt to the Sea" has a breadth and scope which imparts to it a pervasive and universal appeal. This title undoubtedly will be remembered as Sepetys's big breakthrough, and rightly deserving as such. We guarantee you'll find this book hard to put down, and unforgettably heart-rending. (In fact, you may want to keep some tissues handy). Ships FAST!! and securely (in a sturdy box, with complimentary domestic tracking) from Southern California. N° de ref. de la librería ABE1507B2
Sinopsis: New York Times Bestseller and winner of the Carnegie Medal! "Masterfully crafted"—The Wall Street Journal
For readers of Between Shades of Gray and All the Light We Cannot See, Ruta Sepetys returns to WWII in this epic novel that shines a light on one of the war's most devastating—yet unknown—tragedies.
World War II is drawing to a close in East Prussia and thousands of refugees are on a desperate trek toward freedom, many with something to hide. Among them are Joana, Emilia, and Florian, whose paths converge en route to the ship that promises salvation, the Wilhelm Gustloff. Forced by circumstance to unite, the three find their strength, courage, and trust in each other tested with each step closer to safety.
Just when it seems freedom is within their grasp, tragedy strikes. Not country, nor culture, nor status matter as all ten thousand people—adults and children alike—aboard must fight for the same thing: survival.
Told in alternating points of view and perfect for fans of Anthony Doerr's Pulitzer Prize-winning All the Light We Cannot See, Erik Larson's Dead Wake, and Elizabeth Wein's Printz Honor Book Code Name Verity, this masterful work of historical fiction is inspired by the real-life tragedy that was the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff—the greatest maritime disaster in history. As she did in Between Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys unearths a shockingly little-known casualty of a gruesome war, and proves that humanity and love can prevail, even in the darkest of hours.
