"Gretl, an orphan girl, finds herself totally alone at age seven. Through harrowing experience she is spared from the concentration camp but life looks so bleak, she wishes she would still be on the train until she hears and sees the smoke from it being blown up.
Jakob is fighting for the Polish resistance and finds Gretl. They become very close but are separated by continents, politics, language, and religion.
Will Gretl ever see Jakob again, and if so, what will become of their relationship?
I dare you to read this book."
