Review
Young Esther Evans lives in a tiny Welsh town where a German POW camp has just been built. The Germans are the enemy, but the residents are not too thrilled with the English either who have come as guards. Within the POW camp there are also divisions-are the POWs who surrendered cowards? The POWs who were captured think so. Through Esther we are exposed to many viewpoints on subjects we didn't know existed! I very much enjoyed 'meeting' Esther and I hope you will to.  Get this book!

Review
I read this story many times and it never stops inspiring me. A hopeful story about how one person's determined effort to do the right thing was a gift to a countless number of people...many of whom were not yet born. Read this story....though it is short, it will stay with you forever.
