As 13-year-old Karl Muller watches the Anschluss parade from his family's Vienna apartment, he worries that his Jewish family will soon be facing terrible danger. Sure enough, as the months pass, Karl loses his gentile girlfriend, watches his uncle sink into despair, and sees the family business destroyed. His parents put him and his sister, Rosa, on a kindertransport that gets them to County Down, Ireland, where Karl is separated from Rosa and endures hard work and suspicion from the locals. He begins a tentative friendship with Judy, an Irish Jew, and with Peewee, an Irish-Catholic boy, and he's eventually reunited with Rosa. But war comes to Ireland, too, and Karl must decide how to help. The main characters are appealing, and the setting is intriguing in this well- researched novel by an Irish author. The real strength of the book, however, lies in its realistic portrayal of Karl's feelings and of the friendships he makes in his new surroundings.
