Publisher's Summary

In 1930s Berlin, choked by the tightening of Hitler's fist, the Klein family are gradually losing everything that is precious to them. Their 15-year-old daughter, Rosa, slips out of Germany on a Kindertransport train to begin a new life in England. Charged with the task of securing a safe passage for her family, she vows that she will not rest until they are safe. But as war breaks out and she loses contact with her parents, Rosa finds herself wondering if there are some vows that can't be kept....
A sweeping tale of love and loss, with the poignant story of the Kindertransport at its heart, this is an exceptional accomplishment from one of Britain's bravest and most vibrant young writers.

Good Book From Every Aspect

I loved every minute of this book. Julie Teel is a very tallented narrator. The last chapter gave a reall end to the story, a very realistic end. I have so much more to say about this book, but I don't want to spoil it. I highly recommend it.

Loved it

This book kept me VERY ENGAGED! It took you on several journeys and really made you understand what some had to endure during WWII. The lack of trust as well as the faithful friendship of those they were close to prior to Nazi rule. I lived this book very much.
