Description

Ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen can recall a time when there were no German soldiers in Denmark, when you could walk down the streets without fear or worry. But the soldiers of occupation have been in Copenhagen for three long years, and it looks as is they are there to stay. Sometimes Annemarie wonders if her country will ever be free again. Then the news arrives that Jews are being forcibly removed from their homes and relocated. Annemarie's best friend Ellen Rosen is a Jew. Will the Rosens be taken too? The truth behind the rumors hits the Johansen family with force when Ellen is brought to their home in secret late one night. Annemarie is afraid for her friend and wants to do all that she can to help. She admires the resistance fighters who put their lives on the line to free their country and come to the aid of their less fortunate compatriots. But Annemarie wonders: if it were up to her to save Ellen's life, would she be brave enough?

Professional reviews

"Ten-year-old Annemarie Johannesen becomes involved in the evacuation of Jews from Denmark when her family hides her friend, Ellen Rosen, and then aids in her escape. Annemarie learns about the meaning of bravery and the necessity of being protected by lies from loved ones in a time of life-threatening secrets. With vocal versatility, Blair Brown portrays the soft-spoken Johannesens, as well as the loud, brutal Nazis. When important conversations take place, she lowers her voice to cue listeners to pay closer attention. The combination of Brown's steady voice and Lowry's dramatic story creates a mesmerizing production. J.F.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
