Summary
16-year-old Erwin is a young Holocaust survivor. Fellow refugees carry him much of the way to freedom. He is exhausted and sleep is his escape where he converses with his mother and father in dreams. Erwin joins a group of young men who train to build walls, tend orchards, and guard against infiltrators in their new land, Israel.
Critique
The author offers a fictional account of his experiences after WWII. A stark powerful novel.
