  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 February #2
    A girl remembers Nazi troops arriving in Paris and disrupting the happy life she has known. Her family flees, hiding in a forest with other Jews and foraging for food. When 10 of the men arm themselves and venture out and only 3 return, she knows that the others have "flown off to be with the angels." Four years after her family crosses the mountains into Spain and takes a boat to England, the war ends. They return to Paris, where an angel statue seems to welcome the girl home. Though not always convincingly childlike, the graceful writing is poetic and often returns to the theme of angels. Using a subdued palette and soft textured effects, the mixed-media artwork creates an unusual sense of depth within the pictures. In an author's note, Yolen comments on historical subjects related to the story, such as Nazis, European freedom fighters, the Holocaust, and the angel statue in Paris. Children will feel the young narrator's hardships, but her family support and her faith lend warmth to this historical picture book. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
