This is the gripping story of a young girl and her two little sisters hidden in convents in Belgium during the Holocaust. Their mother's remarkable intuition and initiative, together with the selfless assistance and vigilance of two Righteous Amont the Nations, George Ranson and Pere (Father) Bruno, helped save them.

Flora's story is one of the uncommon cases where good triumphed over absolute evil in the Holocaust; it is a tribute to those who took great risks to thwart the Nazis. The entire family survived, and Flora reflects on her parents: "I am at peace. No one killed them. They did not vanish without a trace like the millions of victims in the Holocaust. I know where they are buried and they rest in peace."
