"Through the diary entries that Grace reads, the author is able to
give readers a glimpse of what life was like in Belgium during the
dark days of Nazi occupation. The multi-layered plot is intricately
woven and well paced. The resolution is emotionally satisfying,
making this a story that will appeal to a wide range of readers."
