Tensions during the Yalta Conference in February 1945 threatened to tear apart the alliance between Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin just as a victory in World War II was close at hand. Catherine Grace Katz uncovers the dramatic story of three young women who were chosen by their fathers to travel with them to Yalta, each bound by fierce family loyalty, political savvy, and intertwined romances that powerfully colored these crucial days.

“Catherine Grace Katz paints a vivid portrait of one of history’s great international summits through the eyes of three young women, each a daughter of a key participant. We get the inside story, and learn the compelling details that bring history to life.” — Erik Larson, #1 “New York Times” bestselling author of “The Splendid and the Vile”
