Hans and Gretchen discover a young Jewish boy hiding from Nazi troops and decide to assist him in his escape from Austria. As a Jew in Nazi Germany, the life of young Jacob is cheap. But what he is smuggling is valuable beyond measure--to him, to his people, and to the enemy. To Gretchen, the Nazi can never be forgotten. They destroyed the most priceless relationship she had--and now she must fight for what she has left. Hans knows it is worth risking everything for the three of them to get over the border into Switzerland. But will that be enough? Recommended for ages 9 to 12.
