Abstract:

In the autumn of 1943, although Karin is far too young to understand the Nazi presence or the absence of her Pappa, a soldier in the German army, she is keenly aware of the uneasy tide of change swirling around her. And when a bomb destroys her home, Karin is forced to grow up far too fast as her family joins the tens of thousands displaced in the raids on Berlin. Now, driven by starvation and their perilous existence as refugees, Karin and her family must draw on deep reservoirs of strength and faith to sustain them through the harrowing escape that lies ahead. A sweeping narrative of one young girl's journey through war and beyond--from her childlike observations of World War II in Germany to her changing view as she grows up in a land divided by war.--
