Praise For This Book

"Fascinating ... a brilliant entree into the souls, terrors, ardors, endeavors and hopeless valor of people who have been written off... Now, in a new age of people in peril and adrift on the world's seas, this magnificent novel-and the unexpected and intricate tragedies of its powerfully imagined characters-bespeaks this eternal injustice." - Thomas Keneally, Bestselling author of Schindler's List

"An unforgettable and resplendent novel which will take its place among the great historical fiction written about World War II. Hannah Rosenthal will remain in your heart and her determination to tell the story of what she saw, lived, and lost will change the way you look at the world." - Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife

"powerful and affecting...that sheds light on a sorrowful piece of Holocaust history." -Kirkus Reviews

"I found myself unable to put the book down. I was able to identify with what my parents must have experienced first in Germany and later the St. Louis... beautiful and heartbreaking." -Judith (Koepple) Steele, survivor of the St. Louis

"It was so true to our many life experiences... I became enthralled with the descriptions of the emotional turmoil that these characters endured." - Eva (Safier) Wiener, survivor of the St. Louis

"A vital tribute to liberty, love and of the most fascinating and extraordinary literary events of recent times." - Zoe Valdes, international bestselling author of The Weeping Woman

"Profound and moving...This novel touched me personally, especially because it is written from the point of view of a girl, just like me, on the ship. This tragedy, ignored for so many years, contains a lesson the world must learn and never forget: compassion for refugees."

- Ana Maria (Karman) Gordon, survivor of the St. Louis
