Classified as a novel with the true story of Dita Kraus as its heart and soul, this was a riveting read; equal parts hope and heart break. Outstanding research, character development, and attention to creating full-bodied individuals kept me reading even as I knew many people would not be alive when liberation from the camps finally arrived.

Challenging, rewarding and important read.

Fictionalised version of what happened at Auschwitz. Believable. How people retain some humanity in the face of such a horror.
