In that disguise, she goes to Germany to work as aservant in the household of a high-ranking Nazi official. Surrounded by evil and hate, does Marisa have the courage and perseverance to survive in her enemy'shouse?

It was a really heartbeaking story, but once I had picked it up I couldn't stop reading it. It was an outstanding book. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys reading books about war.
