Note: 
This sad, serious novel is "based on true events - a novel of immigration and survival, 1938-1942." It is the story of the author's mother whose parents sent her from Nazi Germany to the United States in a rescue program called the One Thousand Children project. Told in the first person by 12 year old Edith, it portrays a lost childhood filled with sadness, confusion, and feelings of alienation. Edith is taken in by some relatives in Chicago but she is never welcomed into the family. Baseball and Hank Greenberg become her solace, giving her the determination to live after she finds out that her parents have died in concentration camps. Background material is appended.
