From the Publisher"A story of safe but costly passage from one identity to another that takes us from Europe to America via World War II...[Fremont] has the intelligence and imagination to question her own motives. This allows her to question the memoir form, even as she deploys it so beautifully."
--The New York Times
"An extraordinary tale...eloquently written....Its complex narrative weaves back and forth between past and present, the tale and its discovery."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Fascinating...A tragic saga, but at the same time it often reads like a thriller filled with acts of extraordinary courage, descriptions of dangerous journeys and a series of secret identities."
"Riveting...painfully authentic...a poignant memoir, a labor of love for the parents she never really knew."
--The Boston Globe
"Mesmerizing...Fremont has accomplished something that seems close to impossible: She has made a fresh and worthy contribution to the vast literature of the Holocaust."
--The Washington Post Book World
