    I read the majority of this book in one setting. It was a very engrossing look at pre-WW2 in Czechoslovakia and the kindertransports. Most WW2 novels I have bread are focused on the camps, Austria, Poland, or Germany. This is the first book I can remember that is set in Czechoslovakia....

    With every book I read that is set in the background of or is about WW2 and the people caught up in it, I learn more about the horrid war and the people caught in the clutches of Hitler. But I also get to read about people who became heroes when the occasion most demanded, who did all...

    World War II has always fascinated me. My Uncle Pax (which means "Peace" in Latin) was killed in World War II. He was only nineteen and I think I have a deep desire to know some of what he experienced. It is such a horrific war and time with Hitler killing and hurting so many innocent ...

    Helping children to escape certain death from Hitler's orders makes this book very moving and exciting at the same time. Tricia Goyer did amazing research to share this story. The Nazi forces chased the Jewish people as American Amity Mitchell rose up as a volunteer to assist in rescui...

    An intimate look at a piece of history we dare not forget - the period of such darkness in Europe also had so many unsung heroes working their hardest to do the right thing. This story takes a look at one little piece, which was a new part of the story for me! ...

    I have to admit I was a little nervous going into this book because I really didn't care for the first book in the series. But I have liked her other books so I went into it with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised to find it more like her previous books I'd liked. I am always...

    Tricia Goyer did an amazing work, incorporating four main characters to make one amazing story! I learned so much about kindertransports, struggles during World War II, and how God used different people to make a difference in the midst of hard times. From her role as a tutor to ca...

    Wow! Excellent WW2 story, set in England and Czechoslovakia in 1938-1939. The main characters, instead of being soldiers, doctors, nurses, and so on?as you might find in the average WW2 novel?are a governess, a writer, and a freshly bereaved Jewish widow and mother of two. The comb...
