Críticas:

"This harrowing portrayal of the daily ordeal of Poles caught up in the German occupation-Gentiles as well as Jews-makes this a page-turner as well as a moving testament to the human will to do good and survive despite all odds. Highly recommended." "Library Journal
""[S]earing narrative transforms the old archetypes.... [A] gripping narrative" "Booklist
""A provocative transformation of the classic fairy tale into a haunting survival story set in Poland during WWII, Murphy's second novel (after "The Sea Within") is darkly enchanting. No reader who picks up this inspiring novel will put it down until the final pages, in which redemption is not a fairy tale ending but a heartening message of hope." "Publishers Weekly
""Lyrical, haunting, unforgettable." "Kirkus Reviews""

Reseña del editor:

A poignant and suspenseful retelling of a classic fairy tale set in a war-torn world
In the last months of the Nazi occupation of Poland, two children are left by their father and stepmother to find safety in a dense forest. Because their real names will reveal their Jewishness, they are renamed "Hansel" and "Gretel." They wander in the woods until they are taken in by Magda, an eccentric and stubborn old woman called "witch" by the nearby villagers. Magda is determined to save them, even as a German officer arrives in the village with his own plans for the children.Louise Murphy s haunting novel of journey and survival, of redemption and memory, powerfully depicts how war is experienced by families and especially by children.
"Lyrical, haunting, unforgettable." Kirkus Reviews
"No reader who picks up this inspiring novel will put it down until the final pages, in which redemption is not a fairy tale ending but a heartening message of hope." Publishers Weekly
