"This is a story about strong women, powerful bonds of friendship, family, and love. It is February 1942. The Nazis have taken over Paris. Micheline, a resistance fighter, is assigned to help a downed heroic Allied airman escape through enemy lines to safety in the UK part of the underground transport. Hannah is living in Berlin and running from the Nazis. Out of desperation she turns to her cousin Lilly living in Belgium to help her escape to the United States. However, an unfortunate mistake occurs and Lilly and her family are soon scheduled for deportation to Auschwitz. Hannah has to choose where her priorities lie and then devise a plan, and at what cost. A powerful novel well worth reading that is based on true stories of great courage."--Reviewed by Penny
