Written especially for pupils of 9 and over and anyone interested in the true stories of World War II. The perfect companion to The Disappearance of Goldie Rapaport. Mina's Mountain tells the true story of spirit, faith, and love that carry Hermione Bohm through the dark days of World War Two. In her early years, despite hardship and poverty, her family pulled together. The stark everyday struggle to survive is offset by a strong religious background. During the war, when it is her turn to look after five children of the List family, she takes them to mountains out of harm's way. Against all the odds of wartime, she falls in love and marries. This is a heart-warming story of a girl growing to maturity, when she learns that love never dies.
