Overview

"No fiction could match the excitement of this real-life tale of suspense and survival. Eva's Journey zips along, touching only lightly on the tragedy at its core. The focus instead is on the combination of luck and Eva's amazing presence of mind that allow the Jewish teen to evade capture by the Nazis for four years in occupied Poland and Russia. Eva's Journey is a glorious story of the resilient spirit triumphant over some of the worst human savagery our world has endured."

--Irene McDermott, author of The Librarian's Internet Survival Guide and Reference Librarian/System Manager, San Marino Public Library.

"I was very moved and often teary-eyed as I read this story of the survival of this incredible child."

--Tami Cutler, Elementary School-Teacher, Duarte, California.

"I read the whole story, and it was excellent. I feel that it makes a significant contribution to the literature reflecting Jewish history and experience of that period, and would be useful to schools and historical and cultural organizations. I got quite caught up in the story, and thought it had a lot of feeling."

--Kay Haugaard, Professor of Creative Writing, Pasadena City College and author of No Place.
