Young Marianne is one of the lucky ones. She has escaped on one of the first "kindertransporte" organized to take Jewish children out of Germany to safety in Britain. At first Marianne is desperate. She does not speak English, she is not welcome in her sponsors home, and, most of all, she misses her mother terribly. As the months pass, she realizes that she cannot control the circumstances around her. She must rely on herself if she is to survive. In this exciting companion to "Good-bye Marianne," Irene N. Watts has created a memorable character, and a story that is ultimately about hope, not war. Based on true events, this fictional account of hatred and racism speaks volumes about history and human nature."
