it was amazing
Read in January, 2011

I LOVED this book! It's a simply written biography of a young girl who is sent to England from Vienna to keep her safe from the Nazis at the beginnings of the war in Europe. She has a great talent as a pianst, and her story unfolds predictably, but beautifully as she is blessed with opportunities to excell. The friendships she forged during her years on Willesden Lane were well-developed. Written by Lisa Jura's daughter, one can really appreciate the emotion of living during such a difficult time in history.

Alicia Riley gave me this book for Christmas. Thank you, Alicia! I want my granddaughter, Elizabeth, to read this, as well as Zachary (if he will). I recommend it for anyone who loves a beautiful story of triumph over despair.
