It's the summer of 1939. Two Jewish sisters from Vienna---twelve-year-old Stephie Steiner and seven-year-old Nellie---are sent to Sweden to escape the Nazis. They expect to stay there six months, until their parents can flee to Amsterdam; then all four will go to America. But as the world war intensifies, the girls remain, each with her own host family, on a rugged island off the western coast of Sweden.
