"Hannah, a modern American 13-year-old, complains about celebrating Passover Seder, in which she will listen (for the umpteenth time) to her elders remember. But when she reluctantly participates in the ritual, she's suddenly transported back to Poland in 1942. She has become Chaya, whose future is doomed to the horrors and atrocities of life in a concentration camp. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat is superlative in every way. Her clear voice is suffused with emotion; her dramatic timing perfectly builds suspense and completely captivates the listener. Rosenblat's finesse with foreign accents and her subtle nuances of vocal inflection render wonderfully drawn, compelling characters. Rosenblat makes Yolen's powerful story of survival both heartrending and hopeful. J.H.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
