This story follows a family from Germany to South Africa and highlights the various trials they encounter. Audible's summary explains the storyline nicely. This book is not long, therefore, there is not too much detail covering the backstory or setting but there is the right amount to make this story go smoothly. There is not any explicit sex or violence described.
This could be the story about a real family who lived during the Nazi and Apartheid era. Despite their hardships, they are some of the lucky ones.
The narrator has a pleasant voice and did a lovely job narrating this book. I would listen to another book by this narrator.
I would read/ listen to another book by this author.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and voluntarily left this unbiased review.
The audiobook does however have many technical issues that I hope will be remedied.

The story is that of a well written about part of history, but from a somewhat unique perspective; that of a families struggle with leaving one horror (Nazism) only to be dropped into another (Apartheid0 as seen through the eyes of a twin daughter. This story has ton of potential to be a moving and perplexing listen. The work is well written in that the characters and plot are well developed and the narration of Angela Ness fits the people and locales very nicely.
However, the technical issues with this listen were just too much to overcome. Sentences often repeated (not the fault of the narrator from the sound of it) and at a couple of points it reverted back to the previous chapter. I tried downloading the book again, but had the same issue. Audible really needs to look into this as the technical recording issues get in the way of a well thought out story.
