Product description

Review

‘Oh, what a book this is! Hoffman’s exploration of the world of good and evil, and the constant contest between them, is unflinching; and the humanity she brings to us – it is a glorious experience. The book builds and builds, as she weaves together, seamlessly, the stories of people in the most desperate of circumstances – and then it delivers with a tremendous punch. It opens up the world … in a way that is absolutely unique. By the end you may be weeping’  -- Elizabeth Strout, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Olive Kitteridge

‘A hymn to the power of resistance, perseverance, and enduring love in dark times…gravely beautiful…Hoffman the storyteller continues to dazzle’, The New York Times

‘With the dream-like feel of a fairy tale, this is the story of a young Jewish girl who is sent away from Berlin during the Second World War… this classic fairy tale of good versus evil is wonderful. The storytelling is lush and vivid, and it stayed with me for a long time’, Good Housekeeping
