Patrick and Beth arrive in World War II Holland in the farm country. They must smuggle a baby (by bicycle) into the capable hands of Corrie ten Boom at her home in Haarlem. Along the way they hide from Nazi soldiers, meet a Russian surgeon forced into service by the Germans, and encourage two Jewish children who haven’t been outside in over three years. The children learn to appreciate the bravery and sacrifice of everyday people who helped the Jews.

Hott Review:

What I liked: I really enjoyed this book. Not as much as the audio-series, mind you, but still. It was fun to go back in time and learn so much about a time that isn’t discussed very often any longer but effected our lives so drastically.
What I didn’t like: The kids didn’t love it. None of them. They’d listen to me read it but not one of them would pick it up themselves.
