Hello,

 

I am looking for books with stories based in Lituania.  Preferably not war. 

 

Thank you.

Hi Barbara,

The only one I'm aware of is a YA by Ruta Sepetys, who is Lithuanian herself, about Stalin's movement of the Lithuanians during World War II, Between Shades of Gray.

I loved Between Shades of Gray - a sad but uplifting book.
