Note: 
A powerful and accomplished historical novel set in Denmark during the Nazi occupation. It begins in April 1940, when the Germans invaded under the ruse of protecting the Danes, and ends in 1943, when the valiant secret evacuation of Danish Jews to Swedish began. A Danish Jewish teenage girl and a Danish Gentile teenage boy are the main characters; all of the numerous characters are masterfully portrayed, functioning within a fully-realized plot and setting. Among Levitin's finest achievements, it is a testament to individual courage during a dark and dangerous time.
