Lisa Becker was a German Jew escaping Hitler’s regime seeming sanctuary in England. Torn from her family at age 14, the struggle to love trust and suffer loss follows her. She faces the uncertainty of life during war time.
I liked this book. It made me wonder about how we deal with loss, especially how children deal with loss. Although a work of fiction, it highlighted the heroism and sacrifice of the British people during World War II.
Strangers giving homes to children is a beautiful thing. What makes a community? What makes a family? My mind always strays to the philosophical.
