I loved this book, we tend to forget what these poor people went through with Hitler coming to power.
This is Julien Losier story, a fifteen year old from Southern France, and Nina Krenkel [Niko] a Jewish girl from Austria. There is also the Losier family, and Benjamin Keller a Jewish boy who comes to live with them. The story includes every day life before the thick clouds of danger start to descend on the people of Tanieux.
The people of Tanieux show what it is to be a Christian. They give whatever they to those in need, and people live out their faith in Jesus no matter the cost

I really loved the fact that even though this story is fictional it is really based on fact according to the Historical Notes at the end of the book. Wish there was another book in the story, would like to know how all of the character's stories finish.

Jim Munn You wish there was another book... well, there is! Lydia already wrote it years ago, and Heather is re-writing it now. The main character in the second book is Magali, Julien's sister, who gets involved in saving Jewish children as the war progresses. By the way, here is the authors' site: How Huge the Night
- Jim Munn, Lydia's husband and Heather's Dad.
