Read in January, 1986

The Balicki family of Warsaw was forcibly separated as World War II raged. In 1942, the children, Ruth, Edek and Bronia are left vulnerable and alone to fend for themselves in a suddenly unfamiliar and threatening world. The force that drives them is the dream of reunion with their parents. Jan, a wild urchin, provides an improbable link between the divided Balicki family members. A fictional account based upon true events inspires readers through the enduring hope, valor and strength of will of its young protagonists.
