Silver Days

About The Book

Silver Days is Sonia Levitin's story of a Jewish family—escaping from Hitler's Germany—that moves from New York City to California.

In this sequel to Journey to America, the reunited Platt family works hard at settling in to America, but the spectre of the war in Europe continues to affect their lives.
