I adored this story. Hannah captured me early on and watching her life unfold entranced me. The story is rich in visual details as well as the small details that make the story seem even more real. I loved the descriptions of Hannah’s posh German apartment, the vivid way she tells us about the ship that takes her to Cuba. Hannah and her family must escape Germany as the Nazi Party rises in power. None of them really know where they will end up, but they know they can’t stay in Germany any longer. Hannah begins a journey that will change her life forever and influence the woman she becomes.
