Trudy's Promise by Marcia Preston.
An Act of desperation divides a mother and her child. Only an act of faith can reunite them.
Trudy Hulst has no idea if her husband survived his attempted escape past the newly constructed Berlin Wall. But she knows too well the consequences of his actions. Now branded the wife of a defector, she faces life in prison. With no real choice, she is forced to follow, praying she can find a way to claim her child once she's in West Berlin.
Trudy survives a harrowing break from freedom...only to learn her husband was shot during his escape. Terribly alone, she wanders the wall like a ghost, living for brief glimpses of her son, now of reach behind barbed wire and armed soldiers. Desperate to regain her child, Trudy begins a journey that leads her to America, where she continues an odyssey of hope to find her son.
