Perfect for young fans of historical fiction, Ellen Howard pens an endearing story of two children who find comfort in each other as they are forced to flee Nazi-occupied France.
With the Germans moving to occupy Paris, Betrand, his mother, and his sister are forced to flee the only home they’ve ever known. At the same time, though the south of France has not yet been captured by the Nazis, Zina and her family must leave in order to find work for her Russian-born papa.
Both forced to leave their homes and travel to America for survival, Bertrand and Zina meet each other along their journey to safety. Struggling with the transition and showing their fear in different ways, the young kids learn to find hope and strength through their friendship.
