Reviews

"Farrell's adaptation of Mazzeo's adult title (2016) clearly presents [Irena Sendler's] life and the ever present reality of death in a sobering, heartbreaking narrative. Readers will understand how Sendler came to be honored by Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial as one of the Righteous Among the Nations." -- "Kirkus Reviews"
