Their lives depend on their fragile friendship
Cast out in disgrace after becoming pregnant by a Nazi soldier, and forced to give up her baby, 16-year-old Noa lives above a small rail station, which she cleans to earn her keep. When Noa finds dozens of Jewish infants in a boxcar bound for a concentration camp, she snatches one of the babies and flees into the snowy night.
Noa finds refuge with a German circus, but she must learn the flying trapeze act to blend in undetected, sparking the resentment of the lead aerialist, Astrid. At first rivals, Noa and Astrid soon forge a powerful bond. But as the facade that protects them proves increasingly tenuous, is their friendship is enough to save one another, or will the secrets that burn between them destroy everything?
"A gripping story about the power of friendship to save and redeem even in the darkest of circumstances.... This is a book not to be missed."-Melanie Benjamin, author of The Aviator's Wife
