A New York Times Bestselling Author
Gretel Fernsby lives a quiet life despite her disturbing past. She doesn't talk about her escape from Nazi Germany at age 12. She doesn't talk about the grim post-war years. Most of all, she doesn't talk about her father, who was the commandant of one of the Reich's most notorious extermination camps. Then, a new family moves into the apartment below her. Gretel can't help but begin a friendship with the little boy, Henry. One night, she witnesses a violent argument between Henry's mother and father. Now, Gretel faces a similar crossroads to one she encountered long ago. This time, she can make a different choice than before - whatever the cost to herself.
