"Matas's historical novel shows that the persecution of Europe and Jewish population did not end with their liberation from the Nazi death camps. A 15-year-old girl who makes her way back from Buchenwald to her Polish homeland to discover that Jews are hated by others with suspicion and hatred. Desperate and alone, she meets Saul, who persuades her to join a group of refugees planning to emigrate to Palestine. Historically, the book is accurate and refers to actual events that are interwoven neatly into the narrative." (Novelist Review)
