A memoir

In this poignant book, the author has blended memories with her thoughts, interests and passions. Her cosmopolitan story ranges from Siberia a hundred years ago, where her parents met in unusual circumstances, through the turbulent inter-war years in Germany and France, on to life in Ireland and eventually, Canada, interspersed with stays, long and short, in many countries around the world.

An engaging account of a family torn from one country after another, keeping just ahead of Hitler’s troops and his ultimate solution. Most of the story is told in the pure, clear voice of a girl you will love. It’s no surprise that she became a poet: she’s attentive to detail, humourous, smart, unstoppable. Her insights ring from page to page like small glass bells. As a child, I would have loved to have been her best friend. For any reader, she becomes that and more in the pages of this book. − Lorna Crozier, Poet
