The chapters involving the Jewish family's experiences during the Holocaust seemed like a historical novel because of its connection to real historical figures and events.
The author treats the tensions between the Jewish and Christian faiths, as well as between orthodox and liberal Jewry, with great sensitivity and respect. A careless remark by a well-meaning Christian and a gang of juvenile boys who dabble in antisemitism create situations that not only strain the friendship between the Jewish and Christian families, testing their faith, but also causes one of the gang members to question where his gang activities are taking him.
This novel has an exciting and gripping plot, but beyond that, it makes you think about how one's faith should guide you through life's trying circumstances, and how to communicate your faith honestly and kindly to others.
