From Cathy's list on the Cold War, Nazi hunting, and growing up with spies.
I have read many accounts of the Jewish and European atrocities which kept me interested and wanting a different outcome. As a historical fiction writer, I was so fascinated with the main character's innocence and then resolve to power by using her faith and her personal internal value to survive.

This book is for everyone who wants to step back to a sad time and still see the good. My journey through this one will stay with me forever.
Why should I read it?
