About the Author

Irene N. Watts is a storyteller, playwright, drama consultant, and director who has worked throughout Canada and Europe. She, too, was born in Germany and left by a Kindertransport, though her story is not the same as Sophie's. Irene N. Watts lives in British Columbia.

Reviews

"Most young people know very little about the Kindertransport, and this lovely story will open their eyes while introducing them to a memorable young woman who will remain in their thoughts."
-School Library Journal

"Irene N. Watts, like Sophie, the heroine of her novel...left Germany at the age of 7 for safety in Britain on a kindertransport at the beginning of the Second World War. Perhaps that accounts in part for Watts's ability to convey in such a compelling way the emotional turmoil felt by young Sophie."
-The Globe and Mail "Irene Watts has won prizes and praise for her previous novels, and...this one is even better. The writing flows more evenly, and the plot depends less on particular and peculiar historical circumstances and more on the iternal conflicts of love and loyalty. Its universal theme is enriched by its historical context but is not completely dependent upon it...Highly Recommended."
-
CM Magazine "The story is...poignant... The book is solidly and thoughtfully written, weaving affection, laughter, concern and fear in the background to Sophie's life."
