Narrator Nancy Peterson beautifully brings this sweet historical novel to life. In 1938 in Austria, young Max Dornbach and Annika Knopf agree to hide their Jewish friends' treasures from marauding Nazis. Eighty years later, Callie Randall discovers an antique copy of BAMBI with an unusual inscription in the children's bookstore she owns with her sister. As Peterson narrates these parallel stories, her depictions of Annika and Callie portray the self-doubt and persistence experienced by each woman in her time. With the exception of Callie's aunt, who sounds too elderly, Peterson's characterizations blend smoothly into the narrative. She voices Annika with a soft accent and the determined Max with more gusto but not overt masculinity, capturing their timeless bond.
