The Nazis may have taken their home, but the family still has a guardian angel.

In this emotionally rich story, a little girl and her family live happily in Paris until Nazi soldiers arrive during World War II. She and her family must flee or risk being sent to a concentration camp, so they run into the woods, where they meet resistance fighters. But they’re still not safe; they must cross tall mountains and sail in a rickety boat to England. During their struggle to survive, the little girl thinks of the stone angel near their apartment in Paris and imagines it watching over her family.

Offering a never-before-told story of the Holocaust, Jane Yolen returns to the material she mined in the award-winning The Devil’s Arithmetic. Filled with sorrow, hope, comfort, and triumph, this gorgeously written book is sure to become a modern classic—offering adults a perfect vehicle with which to share a difficult subject.
