When Ellen is suddenly orphaned and dropped alone into a strange city under tight Nazi control, she struggles to survive from day to day.
Her life takes an unexpected turn when she finds a mysterious, metal six-point star that is slightly different from the ‘Star of David’ all Jews are forced to wear.
Not only does the star feel like a sign of hope, but it sets her on a mission to find out what it really means. As she begins to wonder if she'll ever find answers, she meets Lenz, and her life is flung into a whirlwind of danger and hardship, new friends and new enemies, and opportunities to learn trust and true sacrifice.
As she attempts to find her place in the conflict, she discovers she is a part of something so much bigger than she could ever imagine.
Maggie is just a Christian girl who loves the human soul. Because she sees God's fingerprints illuminating everything in the story of life, she knows there is always hope. And she writes to share that promise with others. She longs to capture through her writing the joys, tears, dreams, and fears of the human heart and to cause the reader to understand and feel understood themselves. Her aim is to speak the truth -- even when ugly, to point to the master Author, and to remind others that because of Christ, life is beautiful.
