Publisher's Summary

An inspiring and unforgettable tale about how much we are willing to sacrifice to save the ones we love. Based on the true story of those who risked their lives to smuggle prisoners’ letters in and out of one of the largest concentration camps in Holland during World War Two.

On a cold, dark day in a tiny Dutch village in 1944, Saskia and her boyfriend, Frans, watch as Nazi soldiers force thousands of prisoners toward Amersfoort Concentration Camp. In the desperate faces of the men and women in their loose-fitting clothing, the rumors and fear that have been spreading across Europe suddenly comes to life....

Despite being in danger themselves, when a prisoner begs Frans to send a letter to his beloved reassuring her he is alive, Frans and Saskia know that they must risk everything to help him. Although Saskia’s father’s shop has just been raided and her entire family is under threat, when Frans begins smuggling letters in and out of the camp, Saskia insists she works as a messenger, too.

But every letter Frans gets out of the camp puts him in even more danger.

And every reply Saskia manages to collect is a risk.

And then Saskia goes missing. 

She is led beyond the wire fence and into Kamp Amersfoort.

And she is being forced to wear a yellow star....

This gripping story of courage and resilience will break your heart and piece it back together again. Fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, The Nightingale, and anything by Fiona Valpy will be swept away by this emotional tale.
