Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This eloquent and spirited memoir of a young Jewish girl's coming of age in Nazi-occupied France recounts her own family's difficult and brave survival and portrays as well the love and quiet heroism of her rescuers. A powerful central figure is Madame Marie Chotel, the Catholic concierge and seamstress who hides seven-year-old Odette and her mother in her broom closet while police search, who secures the child's safe haven in a distant province, and who is cherished by Odette, even in absentia, as her godmother and mentor.

Book News Annotation:

A memoir of a Jewish girl's coming of age in Nazi-occupied France, and her efforts as an adult to find out what happened to the Catholic godmother who sheltered her. Includes b&w photos. For general readers.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
