1941, Germany. When his home is destroyed and his mother killed in an air-raid, 15 year-old Sebastian is evacuated to the safe haven’ of Nazi-occupied Poland. But once across the border, he is shocked to find himself enrolled into a brutal military-style Hitler Youth camp, where his life quickly descends into a daily battle for emotional and physical survival. When two of his close friends meet their deaths at the hands of sadistic squad-leader Rainer, Sebastian realises that he must escape the camp if he ever intends to see home again. After enacting a daring bid for freedom, Sebastian is left alone and injured in the frozen wilderness, and is only saved by a group of refugee Romany Gypsies. Over the course of the winter, Sebastian lives with the Romanies and adapts to their peaceful and harmonious way of life. He rejects the Nazi regime and develops a strong bond with a beguiling and mysterious young girl called Mirela. But when a troupe of German Soldiers raid the Romany camp and take everyone prisoner, Sebastian realises his fight for survival is only just beginning. THE ROAD TO HEAVEN is the first of a two-part story by debut author Matthew Elwell.
