BOOK BLURB:
After years of suffering under the communist regime in Cold War Hungary, Eszter Turján—fanatical underground journalist—would sacrifice anything, and anyone, to see the government fall. When she manipulates news broadcasts on Radio Free Europe, she ignites a vicious revolution, commits a calamitous murder, and is dragged away screaming to a secret underground prison.
Her daughter Dora, then a teenager, cowers in her bedroom as the secret police arrest her mother. Haunted and hurt, Dora vows to work against everything Eszter believes in. But, it’s not that simple.
After nine years, Dora meets a strapping young fan of Radio Free Europe and is unwittingly drawn back into Eszter’s circle. She finds her mother, driven mad by years of torture, is headed for death.
On the brink of losing Eszter again, Dora must decide if she should risk her life to save the mother who discarded her—or leave it to fate.

Review

RADIO UNDERGROUND was a well written historical fiction novel that I found a bit depressing at times, but that was worth a read. I generally prefer books that are bit more uplifting, but this book was not one of those awful always depressing books it just had some sad spots like when Dora’s mother was dragged out of her home or when Dora had to decide if she would try to save her mother or not. Overall, this was a good book.
