I am reviewing a copy of The Promise through Second Story Press and Netgalley:
The night Rachel and Toby's parents were taken away their parents gave them three gold coins with the instructions use them to help save lives. They also ask the girls to promise they will stay together forever (because they have a better chance of surviving together.
This is a compelling true story with beautiful illustrations to help introduce young children to these two sisters and the horrors they face in Auschwitz , protecting one another, sharing memories fears and even laughter despite the horrible living conditions. When Rachel becomes ill and is taken by the Nazi guards likely never to be seen again. Toby risks her life in order to use the gold coins to save Rachel's life.
I give The Promise five out of five stars!
