UNA, by Mary Elizabeth Raines, is one of the few serious novels that features an older woman as the main character. While not about the Holocaust per se, it takes place during that tragic time in history.
Una's pampered, insignificant life revolves around her husband, a retired film director in WWII Germany. When he is suddenly framed by the Nazis, she and her spoiled twelve-year-old granddaughter must flee to the woods. Stripped of everything that had formed her identity, Una is forced to start her life all over again in a tremendous and often brutal struggle for survival. Through a series of challenging ordeals, Una begins to transform from a weak and selfish female into a strong leader, a woman of genuine compassion, and a survivor.

(Purchases are available from Amazon and not included with either the book or the Kindle version, nor is the author affiliated in any way with the musicians or their distributors.)
