KIRKUS REVIEW

Deceptively undramatized, this builds up into one of the most moving and absorbing stories of the liberation of a group of political prisoners from southeast Germany. At a low ebb physically with the war's end, three girls and a merchant seaman, members of the Dutch underground, made their way back to Holland in five weeks of chaos. Most of the area was in Russian hands; there were threats of assignment to DP camps; there was the need for transportation of any kind. With them, one shares the hour by hour tensions and the grim determination to get through.
