Hannah is dreading attending her family’s Passover Seder because she is tired of hearing her relatives reminisce about the past. When she opens the home door to welcome the prophet Elijah, she is transported to a Polish village in 1942. Why is she there, and who exactly is this Chaya that everyone thinks she is? Just as she is about to solve the mystery, Nazi forces arrive and take everyone in the town away. Only Hannah is aware of the horrible horrors that await. Jane Yolen’s multi-award-winning novel has received critical acclaim.
