Ms. Hartenstein writes gently, subtly, about a horrible experience: interrment in a WWII prison camp in the Phillipines. The main character's lovely poetry is sprinkled through the story, giving real contrast between the horror experienced in her life, vs. the sweetness of her inner world. A hard topic to handle for young readers, but Ms. Hartenstein does it expertly. I highly recommend it, and will look for more by this author!Was this review helpful?
