About the Author
Maria Kiely studied creative writing at Harvard University. The daughter of a refugee, she grew up listening to her mother's extraordinary tales of escaping Communist-controlled Czechoslovakia. Which Way Is Home? is her debut novel. Maria lives in Somerville, Massachusetts, with her husband and two children.
"Kiely bases her debut novel on the true story of her mother's escape from Communist-era Czechoslovakia. . . . The plot is straightforward and fast-paced. . . . There are plenty of anecdotes that clearly come straight from Anna herself, adding a sense of familiarity and veracity to the story. Readers will easily imagine themselves there with Anna, playing cards with the boys at the refugee camp or eating the unappetizing food. A particularly fascinating detail is the secret code involving gloves and Wuthering Heights that Anna's mother uses to identify herself to people who will help her escape. . . . A warm story about trust during hardship."--Kirkus Reviews
