Odd combination of ingredients: a Viet Nam orphan age 13, an elderly Frenchman (her guardian) who was in the WWII resistance (and later, Viet Nam), a French pharmacist who survived the Holocaust when the rest of his family was executed. The writing provides a lovely and unusual treatment of subjects of war and hatred. The CD was read by Joanna Wyatt, a talented voice that adds joy and compassion to the words. The dialogue models the most incredible and compassionate exchanges between a 13-yr-old girl and elderly (and demented) men on subjects ranging from history to human emotion to questions attendant to puberty. Very innocent and choice.
