Courage beyond words.
We could have bought the book!
While subjected to the horrors of WWII Germany, a young woman finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. Under the stairs in her home, a Jewish refugee is being sheltered by her adoptive parents. As she reads to him, a relationship develops, but the Nazis are forever searching houses and it is only a matter of time before they come knocking.
