Turned down by publishers at the time she wrote in the wake of her experience in Nazi occupied Europe, for fifty years Edith Hofmann's book has lain gathering dust, waiting to be read. Her story is a novel, but it is not a fiction. It is a raw and aching testimony both to her survival, and to her bid to survive survival. You will be moved. Not only by what she has written, but by the fact that she wrote at all.
