During World War II, a Jewish orphan is living with her aunt and uncle when she is rounded up with other Jews, and sent to live in a peasant household. When her Judaism is discovered, she is asked to leave and wanders from village to village, confused by the threat that hangs over her, but maintained by a fierce belief in her eventual return to her family.

I want to read it 1 million times. If you liked this book, then you would also like the invisible thread.

This was interesting because this girl is labeled as Jewish but knows nothing about Judaism and is actually Catholic. Very good book!
