Format: Hardcover
This is a Heroine's journey during time of war. From Vienna, the city of music, to a little house outside London, where Lisa Jura will find safety & a piano where she can continue her mother's legacy.
It is the memories of the descent into the hell that Adolph Hitler visited upon the people of Europe, upon the life of one girl with a huge talent & a family who sent her away that she might survive.
It is memories of danger & death, as well as hope & the goodness in people's hearts, & how a dream made a girl brave & true to her heritage.
THE CHILDREN OF WILLESDEN LANE is passionate, engaging & charming, destined to find its place beside THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK.

Again, one of the many books about the tasks Sir Nicholas Winton set himself, to get as many of the vulnerable Hebrew children out of Germany, and this, excellent book depicts the life some of the fortunate children after their arrival in England. A 'can't put the book down until the last page'. A tear jerky story.

A wonderful story, but written in a very old-fashioned, irritating style. The writing style does not do justice to the story. I understand the author did this on stage as a monologue with piano music which I heard was really moving.

Excellent book arrived in perfect condition. The book is well written and very interesting. This book was used so I was doubtful about ordering it, I did pay quite a high price and it was worth it. The book was like it was new.

This is a beautiful story, probably helped by my own love of music and the piano, but nonetheless a story of inspiration and an easy read.
