Ursula taps her Lithuanian heritage in her second novel, Amber Wolf, a saga of love and war. After her mother is murdered in the torment of the Russian invasion of 1944, Ludmelia Kudirka flees to the safety of the forest. Vowing vengeance, Ludmelia joins the partisans fighting for freedom in a David-and-Goliath struggle against the mighty Soviet war machine. Amber Wolf will be available in 2016.
While her roots are in rural New England, Ursula has traveled widely. She lives with her husband in Massachusetts, and has a daughter in college. Ursula scuba-dives, swims, and is an avid hiker.
