World War II has finally ended. Thirteen-year-old Annie de Leeuw and her sister have spent almost three years hiding in the upstairs room of a remote farmhouse in Holland. Now they can go home to rejoin their father and older sister. But saying goodbye to the courageous family who hid them is very difficult for Annie. And she finds that being home again isn't easy either. Her older sister has become a devout Christian. Her widowed father marries a wealthy woman who rejects the unsophisticated Annie. Gradually the teenager feels torn between nostalgia for the farm and desire for her new mother's approval.

The Journey Back is a moving testament to the Dutch people's kindness and resilience during the war. It is also a poignant tale of a young woman striving to define her place in the world. Narrated by the author, this sequel to The Upstairs Room becomes an unforgettable listening experience. Download and start listening now!

    " This book was beautifully written. The old English style was delightful. The descriptive narrative was wonderful and I found myself so immersed in this adventure I suffered like the characters and felt their thirst, despair and excitement. When Axel was lost I feared as he! This was a suspenseful exciting story and I could hardly put it down. I feel that more Jules Verne books will find a home on my shelf "

    " Another childhood read, which I remember very much enjoying. I don't recall much beyond the river named after Hans, which was boiling hot at first. That's it. I doubt I'll ever read it again. Why trade a four-star read for a one-star, after all? "

    " A very enteraining reading of Journey to the Center of the Earth by Leonard Nimon (Spock) and John DeLancie (Q) of Star Trek with additional voices by other actors featured in the various Star Trek shows. They really bring the book to life and make it quite enjoyable. "

    " Lots of technical terms. Not as good as some of the other Verne books. "
