A true story of hope and survival during the Second World War.
Fourteen-year-old Lisa Jura was a musical prodigy who hoped
to become a concert pianist.
But when Hitler's armies advanced on pre-war Vienna, Lisa's parents
were forced to make a difficult decision.
Able to secure passage for only one of their three daughters through
the Kindertransport, they chose to send gifted Lisa to London for safety.
As she yearned to be reunited with her family while she lived in a home
for refugee children on Willesden Lane, Lisa's music became a beacon of hope.
A memoir of courage, survival and the power of music to uplift the
human spirit, this compelling tribute to one special young woman
and the lives she touched will both educate and inspire young readers.
