Description


Michal is smitten. Then the Nazi death train comes for her family. Can he save her?

Present-day Idaho. Summer break can't come soon enough for Jodi. As the awkward new kid in her small-town junior high school, she is the prime target of the class bully. Even the orchestra teacher won't cut her any slack. While fleeing from her nemesis, Jodi winds up in an unknown neighborhood, trapped in a sudden thunderstorm. A frail old man whisks her into the safety of his cozy home. Her tattered violin case sparks a conversation that leads to violin lessons and a unique friendship.

1943 German-occupied Poland. Michal lives a privileged and sheltered life in Nazi occupied Warsaw. On his fourteenth birthday, he accompanies his father to the factory he runs. Michal sees and is immediately smitten with the daughter of his father's Jewish assistant. When Michal later learns that the Jewish ghetto is being evacuated and the occupants herded to the train station, he races to the depot. Taking advantage of a moment of chaos, and without a plan, he snatches the girl by the wrist and whisks her from the station-but not without a hasty promise to her father to keep her safe.

To what lengths will Michal go to honor his promise? And how will the account of his harrowing and dangerous escape from the ruthless Nazis give Jodi the confidence she needs to navigate the unfriendly hallways of junior high and plant the seeds for her future?
