What is it like for a child of eight to leave the only home he's ever known, traveling alone by land and sea to an uncertain future?
On the eve of World War II, this was the journey of young Steve Adler. Born in 1930 to a German-Jewish family, Steve was one of the lucky ones: finding refuge from persecution and danger during the Holocaust in England and later the United States.
This true story takes the reader swirling along with moments in history as seen through Steve's eyes: from the moment his happy world in Berlin was shattered; to separation, evacuation, and foster homes in England; and finally, to stability and strength in the United States. Steve's refugee story transcends time and place to illuminate the costs of war and bigotry, while also offering a beacon of human hope and resilience.
