Description
Born in a Siberian village in 1952 to Latvian parents who had been banished by the Soviet regime, Sandra Kalniete longed to see her country free of foreign control. After Stalin's death, she and her family were allowed to return to Latvia in 1957, but for Kalniete it was just the beginning of a long struggle for her country's independence. In this 2001 memoir, Kalniete details her rise from exile to freedom fighter to first Latvian Commissioner of the European Union.

"The former Latvian Foreign Minister has written a moving story of her family—and helped to fill gaps in the historical awareness of Europe."—Der Tagesspiegel
