A perilous journey…
A race against time…
A dawning hope

As Nazi forces tighten their net of evil over Europe in
1940, famed Jewish concert violist Elisa Lindheim Murphy
escapes from Vienna to England. But both Elisa and her
American newsman husband, John Murphy, are convinced
that nowhere in Europe is safe from Hitler’s seemingly
unstoppable forces.

As Nazi U-boats patrol and sink Allied vessels in the North
Atlantic, Elisa makes a desperate but brave decision—to
accompany Jewish refugee children on a civilian transport
through treacherous seas to seek asylum in America. At
least there, in the land of freedom, the ragged remnant
of the Jewish people can live on in peace and safety—or
so she hopes. But as German torpedoes streak toward the
refugee ship, Elisa will face the greatest trial of her life….
