“The Last Green Valley” is Mark Sullivan’s latest novel which is based on fact. In March 1944, siblings Emil and Adeline Martel have to make a terrible decision: do they wait for the Soviet intrusion and risk being sent to Siberia or do they reluctantly follow the wolves – murderous Nazi officers who have pledged to protect “pure-blood” Germans? They decide that they must leave their land and go with the “wolves” in search of freedom in the west, ending up in Montana. “The Last Green Valley” is also available on CD.
