Is It Night or Day?

Out of stock
1938: Edith, a twelve-year-old German Jew, is heartbroken when her parents send her to live in America to protect her. Sharing a Chicago apartment with her uncle Jack, aunt Mildred, and cousin Dorothy, Edith is treated like a servant. She's barely allowed out of the house except for school, where kids tease her. But much worse than all this is Edith's growing awareness that she and her parents will likely never be reunited. Based on true events. Afterword.
