Child of the Light Publisher's Summary

This remarkable book follows the lives of three friends, Solomon Freund, a Jew, Erich Wiesser, his Catholic neighbor and "brother in blood", and Miriam Rathenau, whom both boys love, and who happens to be niece of Germany's foreign minister Walther Rathenau. From their youth helping at their parents' co-owned tobacco shop, the boys find their relationship strained, as was all of Germany, by the growth of the National Socialist party and the descent of Germany into a Nazi hell.

    Picking up three years after the end of Child of the Light, Journey begins with Miriam now married to Erich and Sol safe in Holland. However, Erich has told Miriam that Sol is in a camp, and her only hope of keeping him safe is to remain Erich's faithful wife. When Solomon learns of the deception, he returns to Berlin to try to bring Miriam out with him. Instead, he ends up in the very hell that Erich had been telling her he was in.
