Publisher Summary
A Jewish family fleeing Nazi Germany in 1938 endures innumerable separations before they are once again united.

It's 1938, and terrible things are happening in Germany. Jews are being hounded with no laws: you must a wear a yellow star on your clothing; you cannot attend this school; you cannot go here...or there. The Nazis are in charge.

Lisa Platt lives with her parents and two sisters. She doesn't fully know what is happening, but she is scared. Her father decides the family's only chance is to get to America. He'll have to go first to find a home and a job.

Meanwhile, Lisa, her mother, and sisters will have to live Switzerland and wait to hear from him.

And so they do, waiting, enuduring more hardships than any of them could ever have imagined.
