Summary, etc.:
"The New York Times bestselling author of the "heart-stopping tale of survival and heroism" (People) The Book of Lost Names returns with an evocative coming-of-age World War II story about a young woman who uses her knowledge of the wilderness to help Jewish refugees escape the Nazis--until a secret from her past threatens everything"-- Provided by publisher.
1941. Stolen from her wealthy German parents and raised in the unforgiving wilderness of eastern Europe, Yona finds herself alone after her kidnapper dies. Her solitary existence is interrupted when she happens upon a group of Jews fleeing the Nazi terror. Stunned to learn what is happening in the outside world, she vows to teach the group all she can about surviving in the forest-- and in turn, they teach her some surprising lessons about opening her heart after years of isolation. When Yona is betrayed and escapes into a German-occupied village, her past and present come together in a shocking collision that could change everything. -- adapted from jacket
