"Touching and thoughtful, Kristina von Rosenvinge makes us feel we are experiencing each moment with her, as she takes us on a trip through her childhood in Estonia and Austria and, ultimately, across the Atlantic in 1952. People of all ages will find her memoir riveting." -- Sheron J. Dailey, Professor Emerita, Indiana State Univeristy.
"This is a heartfelt tribute to hope amidst the calamities of Soviet occupation and communist rule in Estonia. We must remember our families whose love and determination helped us outlast these brutal regimes." -- Marion Smith, Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation
