Brzeziny, Poland, 1939. Zofia's comfortable lifestyle overturns when her husband, Jabez, who monitors Nazi activity, has gone missing. Rather than fleeing the country with her young son, as she had promised Jabez who is fearing retaliation, she decides to stay. She cannot possibly leave her friend, Aanya. Since their childhood they have amazed fellow Brzeziners that it does not matter that Aanya is Jewish and deaf, and that Zofia is Catholic and hearing. Now, more than ever with war looming, Zofia will do whatever is necessary to protect her family and Aanya.
As both love and war approach their Polish town, Zofia and Aanya must make choices that will change the meaning of family, home, and their precious friendship. The journey, decisions, and the no-going-back consequences the women face will either help them to survive—or not—as Hitler's Third Reich revs up its control of the world.
Inspired by the author's paternal heritage from Brzeziny, this is a heartbreaking yet beautiful story of two women who are determined to remain united in friendship and to live freely despite the odds.

We Shall Not Shatter is a must have.
I am a lover of history and this book did not disappoint. Elaine’s eloquent way of writing about such a sensitive time period captured my attention from the first page. I felt like I was there with Zofia, Aanya and their families throughout their courageous journeys. I am convinced, We Shall Not Shatter should be required reading in college English classes. This novel also would make an excellent movie with its many valuable lessons including acceptance, forgiveness, and showing kindness in the face of adversity. I loved this book so much I also purchased the
paperback version. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Well done Elaine. You should definitely purchase this book for yourself and all of your friends.
