Power is the bride of the bold. In short order, her father commits suicide, and her mother and younger brother are dispatched to the gas chambers, but fifteen-year-old Hanka Kauderzova is still alive.

Facing the proposition of being sent to the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau, she finds her way into a group of girls being considered for the brothel and is selected for a job that leaves her questioning everything she knows. As the German army retreats from the Russian front, Hanka battles cold, hunger, fear, and shame, sustained by her hatred for the men she entertains, her friendship with the mysterious Estelle, and her fierce, burning desire for life.
