Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
HIn a noteworthy departure, Isaacs (Swamp Angel; Treehouse Tales) turns her considerable literary gifts to a painful subject--her mother-in-law's experiences as a teenage prisoner of a Nazi camp--and transforms it into a powerful work of fiction. Like most stories of survival, this one is marked by unlikely turns and conjunctions, which, taken together, preserve the protagonist's life. Eva Buchbinder, 12 years old in 1943, has recently been forced into the Jewish ghetto in Bedzin, Poland, along with her father and sickly older sister, Rachel. After Rachel is seized in a roundup, Eva's father (who has, like other Jews, been forced to work for the Germans without pay) asks the commandant at his worksite to find out exactly where Rachel has been sent--and to have Eva sent there as well. Soon Eva is transported to a slave labor camp in Czechoslovakia, where she indeed finds Rachel. The conditions are terrible: starvation rations, dangerous conditions at the textile factory where they work, rampant disease and, always, the threat of deportation to Auschwitz. Eva struggles internally as well, trying her best to protect the frail Rachel, keeping from Rachel the news that the Bedzin ghetto has been liquidated and weighing the invitation of a fellow-prisoner to join up with partisan fighters. Isaacs takes the measure of acts of casual cruelty or kindness and lets readers see the repercussions. Given its precise detail and sensitivity to unimaginable suffering, this gripping novel reads like the strongest of Holocaust memoirs. Ages 10-up. (Apr.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Children's Literature
Eva is twelve years old when her father makes arrangements for her to join her sister, Rachel, in a work camp in Czechoslovakia, rather than wait for a Nazi raid in Poland. Before he says goodbye, he tells Eva that any choice that will grant even one more hour of life for herself and Rachel is the one she must make. This is Eva's guiding principle during two excruciating years as a slave laborer in a Nazi textile mill. Rachel is susceptible to colds and is often sick. Eva knits in the evenings and on Sundays in exchange for extra food. She volunteers to dig trenches at the promise of hot stew. Whatever she gets, she shares with Rachel. Rachel's frail health keeps the reader on edge throughout the novel. Her miraculous recovery from typhus just after liberation is transcendent. This tale of sisterly love and astounding determination is based on the experiences of the author's motherinlaw. Isaacs has beautifully transcribed her family's history. This novel will not become a wallflower among a host of other Holocaust novels. In these pages, readers will find an inspirational strength of character, sibling loyalty, and faith. 2000, Scholastic, Ages 10 up, $15.95. Reviewer: Jackie Hechtkopf
Childrens Book Watch
Eva has become used to life under Nazi rule in the Polish ghetto, and must face a new world when she and her sister are taken from their father and imprisoned in a Nazi work camp in Czechoslovakia. Forced to endure harsh conditions there, Eva's world revolves around keeping her frail sister alive and longing for their family's reunion.

    The most important book I've read in a long time!

    This is a heart-breaking story about two sisters during the Holocaust. Eva and Rachel get separated when Rachel is caught by German soldiers and taken to a work camp. Their father finds out where Rachel is being held and sends Eva to be with her. This book brought so many insights to me about the Holocaust. It helped me understand the horrors that these individuals had to live through. I felt like I really knew the characters. You will cry right along with them. I highly recommend this book.

    ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE READ

    This is a great book. Sad and happy. Isaacs does a great job in telling about the Holocaust. It is a powerful book. It is not all fiction. It is also the story of Anne Isaacs mother-in-law, Eva. It is a great read. You'll be stuck to the book.

    I can't believe I barely took time to read this book when I started it.

    I cannot believe I didn't read this book much earlier and decided to just watch TV and do nothing all summer. The second part is cool and I loved it. Nobody should ignore reading this book. It was great.

    Great book!

    I recently read this book and was kept on the edge of my seat the whole time. It is a great way to learn about the life of a Jew during Nazi WWII.
