A Frost in the Night: A Childhood on the Eve of the Third Reichby Edith Baer
It is Germany in 1932, and Hitler is rising to power. This critical place and time in modern history is poignantly re-created through the observations of a young Jewish girl named Eva, who is caught up in the sense of dread shared by the adults around her. Edith Baer has written a novel distilled from memory, love, loss, and sorrow which depicts a girl's impressions of a nation beginning to destroy itself and an entire way of life. A Frost in the Night was nominated for the National Jewish Book Award and won the Arnold Gingrich Award for Literature when it was first published in 1980. FSG's reissue coincides with the proud occasion of the publication of its long-awaited companion, Walk the Dark Streets.
