    Leslie Maitland is an award-winning former New York Times investigative reporter whose mother and grandparents fled Germany in 1938 for France, where, as Jews, they spent four years as refugees—the last two under risk of Nazi deportation. In 1942 they made it onto the last boat to escape France before the Germans sealed the harbors. Then, barred from entering the United States, they lived in Cuba for almost two years before immigrating to New York.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    the narrator was very good and I'm glad she chose to read her own book, making the story that much more real and appealing.


    Any additional comments?

    Blackstone Audio needs to take another editing pass through this book. Many, many times a sentence was repeated, especially towards the end - where an interruption, however slight, is unwelcome.
