"Although the tone of the novel is straightforward and subdued, the devastating effects of the Occupation are cumulative, leaving the reader with a strong sense of the inner fortitude and courage necessary for survival when people are devastated by a brutal war."--The Horn Book
"World War II is well represented in most historical fiction collections, but only a small number of such books can boast a non-American perspective. For this reason, and for its gripping suspense, this book would complement any middle or high school collection. Recommended" -- "Library Media Connection"
