Jewish Book World
"This powerfully written book gives the viewpoint of the Christian person who basically sacrificed a comfortable, 'safe,' and somewhat secure living in order to help the Jewish people during WWII. . . Reading this book, one cannot help but think of the 'Righteous Gentiles,' people who literally gave of themselves so that at least some of our people could live."
"Hers is a splendidly uplifting account of heroism against the odds. Extracts from her diary and letters written at the time add to a sense of immediacy. We are caught up in her fears, hopes and dilemmas as she experienced them."
