***THE UNFORGETTABLE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER***

'Secrets, lies, treachery, and passion... I read this novel in a headlong rush' Christina Barker Kline, number one bestselling author of Orphan Train




'Jenoff's prose is evocative and compelling' The Globe and Mail



Sixteen-year-old Noa has been cast out in disgrace after becoming pregnant by a Nazi soldier and being forced to give up her baby.


She lives above a small rail station, which she cleans in order to earn her keep... When Noa discovers a boxcar containing dozens of Jewish infants bound for a concentration camp, she is reminded of the child that was taken from her.


In a moment that will change the course of her life, Noa snatches a baby and flees into the snowy night. And so begins this remarkable, harrowing story of friendship, sacrifice and survival in World War II from the international bestselling author, Pam Jenoff.
