Based on a true story, this is a fictionalized account of the life of a 3-year-old girl who is left in Romania by her Jewish parents who are fleeing persecution. She is adopted by a Romanian couple and the family’s life is then impacted by World War II and the Russian Communist regime. It is a story filled with love, sacrifice, secrets and the horrors of war. It was beautifully written and I finished it in a day as I could not put it down.
