Amazing WWII Flea Market Find

I found these incredible tomatoes at The Chilmark Flea Market this year, grown from seeds the vendor’s New Zealand friend’s father grew while interned in a Polish prisoner of war camp.


The tomatoes were absolutely delicious, and I planted some of the seeds in my garden on Martha’s Vineyard. Fingers crossed plants emerge so I can keep this wonderful WWII POW tomato chain going!

  1. I just finished the book. I listened to it on CD in my car. I can’t tell you how many times I just kept driving so I could continue to listen. I just cannot believe we do not know about this story. I was many moved to tears many times and was so disturbed by the cruelty thrust upon these women. But then also by the generosity of strangers and Caroline.

    It was a rollercoaster ride of emotions for me and sometimes I had to pull over while driving to shed some tears. The confrontation between Kasha & Dr. Overhausan at the end was so perfect!

    Thank you for the history lesson and or creating such compelling characters!!

    Thank you so much for wetting my appetite. I want to learn more!
