Note: 
A young German girl endures familial separation when she is sent to Switzerland by her non-Jewish father to live with his mother just after Kristallnacht, November 1938. Nan is a rambunctious, yet stubborn girl reminiscent of the character of Heidi. Her optimistic outlook carries her through many adventures and perils and her long journey brings unexpected surprises and maturation; it is not only geographic but spiritual as well. This convincing story portrays the simple desires and thoughts of a young girl who must make critical choices about Judaism, having never lived a Torah life. The cast of characters are memorable and believable, their interactions guided by the terrible times in which they live.
