This is the true story of a young Russian poet's four-year ordeal in one of Russia's toughest prison camps; the narrative is interspersed with previously unpublished poems. It tells how, sustained by her deep personal faith, Irina was able, along with her fellow women prisoners, to build a life of courage and mutual support. Irina was released in 1986 following intense Western pressure.
