Narrator Beata Pozniak's authentic accent carries listeners into this gripping true account of Stefania (Fusia) Podgorska. Fusia leaves her country home to live and work with the Diamants, a Jewish family in the town of Przemysl, Poland. Pozniak portrays how Fusia thrives with the loving family--until Nazis arrive and the Diamant family is sent to the ghetto and Fusia's beloved Izio Diamant is transported to a concentration camp. As Pozniak contrasts the guards' coldness with Fusia's horror and guilt, she develops a plan to rescue Izio. Pozniak increases the tension as this compelling heroine juggles cold, poverty, and terror with nurturing her young sister, maintaining a job, and hiding 13 Jews in the attic of an apartment she has to share with Nazis. The author reads the afterword. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
