Based on a true story comes a timeless tale of true love, even in the harshest of times. A British Prisoner of War (POW) from the near on-set of his enlistment in World War II, Horace Greasley was caught by the Nazis in May 1940 in the French Countryside where he was working on a railway actually, after a mere five weeks. After a ten week march to the first of two concentration camps he would be confined to for the next five years, he encountered a German woman, seventeen-year-old Rosa Rauchbach, for whom his love and addiction to, would not only save himself, yet enable his comrades to survive under the harsh and cruel conditions of the Nazi prison camps. Against all odds, his love and devotion to Rosa Rauchbach motivated him to escape from his POW prison camp just to be with her, only to return some two-hundred times, undetected, to bring food and supplies to his comrades empowering their survival. RUNNING ON THE LUCK OF MY HEART is the true story of how one man's love for a young woman on the wrong side of the war saved not only his life, yet the lives of hundreds more.show more
