An Address in Amsterdam by Mary Dingee Fillmore

Rachel hopes the Nazi’s won’t be in Amsterdam long when they arrive in 1940, but as her friends protest and disappear she finds her own ways of voicing her discontent.  Eventually Rachel and her family choose to go into hiding which is inherently problematic for them.   A touching story of a girl growing up in hard times and the tough choices she has to make and see.   I loved Rachel’s tough spirit and at the same time i was touched by how deeply she was affected by the events around her, and their impact on her daily life.  A touching read that leaves the reader with hope.
