Rate this:
Eleven-year-old Margit and her mother have escaped the Nazi terror in war-torn Czechoslovakia for safe haven in Canada. Settling as refugees in Toronto's Kensington Market neighbourhood in 1944, Margit is overwhelmed by the freedom and plenty of the new world in which she finds herself, and by the kindness of new family and friends. Yet as Margit adapts to a new life, her past continues to haunt her. There is intolerance towards Jews in Canada, too. Some people don't think she belongs here. And there is still no news of her father, who was taken away by the Nazis back home. Will they ever see him again?
