World War II, 1942. Southern France. The SS are rounding up Jews in German-occupied Nice.
Two French families, one Jewish, one Catholic. Two three-year olds, Sarah and France, neighbors on a French Riviera hill.
Sarah has disappeared, her parents deported. The Nazis are searching for the missing child. France’s mother is suspected of hiding Sarah.
Thus begins the flight of a mother and her six children to safety.
This is the story of a courageous woman who, alone, secures her children’s survival. The author, a child then, recounts the altered life of her family during these frightful years.
