Waiting for Anya
A village high in the mountains on the French-Spanish border seems relatively untouched by World War II. Young Jo, falling asleep one day when he should be guarding the sheep on the mountainside, meets a stranger. When a German garrison is stationed in his village to stem the flow of people escaping over the border, Jo finds that his life, and the lives of others, depends on how well he keeps his dangerous secret.
