it was amazing

In the best of books, a character makes me want to be better than I am. This is exactly how Meg Waite Clayton's heroine, Truus Wijsmuller, affected me. Through her unbridled bravery, she rescued over ten thousand children from German oppression, brought them to safety in England. But this book goes further in its value for me. Although set in the 1930s, this story has immense relevance and lessons for today. Well-researched. Brilliantly written. Timeless.

Note: I "won" this book as part of a Goodreads give-away.

This is exactly how the real Truus makes me feel, Bren. Thank you so much for reading, and for this lovely review.
