As Nazi Germany casts longer shadows across pre-war Europe, Elisa Lindheim, a young and talented violinist, successfully buries her Jewish heritage and continues to perform with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. Her world crumbles, however, when her fiancé joins the SS, her father is sent to a concentration camp, and the Gestapo comes knocking at her door. Sean Barrett reads with calm assurance and has a field day with the many archetypal accents: the sneering Nazi officer, the kind but baffled Austrian store clerk, and the Bogart-like American journalist. The action builds to a terrifying climax during KRISTALLNACHT, when the Nazis step up their attacks on Jews and Elisa risks her life to help others escape just in time.
