Product description

Lisa Jura is a musical prodigy who hopes to be a concert pianist. But like millions of other Jewish people’s dreams, hers are shattered when Hitler’s army marches on pre-war Vienna. Now Lisa’s parents must make a terrible choice. They can send one of their three daughters to safety in London through the Kindertransport. So they choose Lisa: the gifted one. Lisa finds herself in a home for refugee children on Willesden Lane in London, trying to survive as Blitz bombs hit. And while she yearns for her lost family, her music becomes a beacon of hope…

  • A heartwarming, heartbreaking story of music and war
  • Based on the true story of Holocaust refugee Lisa Jura
  • Follows Lisa’s escape to England on the Kindertransport
  • Written by Lisa’s daughter, who is also a concert pianist
