Summary, etc.:
"1944, Germany. After years of hiding from the Nazis, Rachel Epstein and her little sister, Mindel, are captured by the Gestapo and sent to the concentration camp at Bergen-Belsen. The only ray of light for either girl is that they are together. But on arrival, Rachel is sent to work in a brutal factory, while four-year-old Mindel is sent into the so-called "star" camp for Jewish prisoners. Rachel knows her sister will have no chance of survival--unless she can find someone to take care of her. As she works in the windowless, airless factory--filling munitions casings with chemicals that burn her fingers and make her eyes sting--the only thing that keeps Rachel going is the thought of her little sister. Separated by barbed wire and SS guards who ignore their pleas, can the orphaned sisters ever dare to hope that they'll find their way back to each other? And to freedom?"--Page 4 of cover.
Author Notes

Marion Kummerow is a USA Today Bestselling author of historical fiction. Her books are filled with raw emotions, fierce loyalty and perpetual resilience. She loves to put her characters through the mangle, making them reach deep within to find the strength to face moral dilemma, make difficult decisions or fight for what is right. And she never forgets to include humor and undying love in her books, because ultimately love is what makes the world go round. Marion was born and raised in Germany, before she set out to "discover the world" and lived in various countries. In 1999 she returned to Germany and settled down in Munich where she's now living with her family.
