She is 15 years old and in love. Only this is Nazi-ruled Berlin and hes a Jew, so its against the law to love him. There are spies everywhere and theyre taking the last Jews away from Berlin—to the gas chambers. Powerfully evoking civilian survival in a bomb-blasted city, and the sacrifice and courage required to maintain high individual standards of friendship and integrity, this novel of love and courage in the face of danger is one that readers will not be able to put down.
Welcome to Leslie Wilson's Website
Germany, As the Russian armies close in, fourteen-year-old Effi is desperately trying to reach her father and the safety of the West. But there are far more dangerous people on the road, and Effi and Hanno reluctantly team up in their bid to reach the West in the face of advancing Russians, German deserters — and Major Otto, who likes to play terrifying games with people before he kills them. For all its harshness, it concerns courage and love. Liz Buie The Herald.
