    Once again, Ms Harmel has hit a home run with this WWII historical fiction We begin this story meeting an elderly librarian in Florida as she sees an image of a book that she has not seen in decades The image and article is of a book that our librarian used to log the names of Jewish children that had been smuggled out of France The story takes off from thereThe story is told in alternating timelines and it is easy to follow
