My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am only sorry I didn’t get more out of life while I could. She understood that she was going to die. If the Nazis were coming for one Jew, it was only a matter of time before them for us all.

What a lovely account of the author’s family in their escape from the Hungary. The illustrations will pierce your heart and their story will open your eyes to reality of the importance of equality for all. Equality meaning the pursuit of justice and the freedom of life and liberty. This book is geared for children 4th grade and up, however, as mom and a grandmother now, I would treasure this account with my own to instill in their own hearts the value of people.

The illustrations show maps of the escape and the difficulties making a simple journey. Their fears and their gratitude in their successful escape. I highly recommend.

A Special Thank You to Capstone Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
