5.0 out of 5 starsit's the descriptions of life and conditions which lifts this book up
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 25, 2017
The heart warming story written in 1936 of an 11yr old German girl who is shipped, or rather trained, over to London on the famine trains out of Austria, and is paired up with a well meaning benefactor and her 18yr old nephew. Needless to say love conquers all a few years later, even after she is married and he is an MP. However it's the descriptions of life and conditions which lifts this book up, you are transported back to the era and all its privations and lack of basics, an amazingly descriptive narrative, beautifully written.
