    Review quote
    "Terrifically moving." --"The Washington Post""Yolen takes the story of Briar Rose and links it to the Holocaust--a far from obvious connection that she makes perfectly convincing...Only a writer as good as Yolen could bring it off." --"Publishers Weekly""Both heartbreaking and heartwarming, Yolen's novel is a compelling reminder of the Holocaust as well as a contemporary tale of secrets and romance."--"Booklist""Showcases Yolen's skill at transforming the real world into a realm of fantasy." --"Library Journal"
