The Convent is the compelling story of Malke, a twelve-year-old Jewish girl who is smuggled into a convent to escape the Nazis as they overrun her Polish village during the Holocaust. Malke, daughter of a cantor and granddaughter of a rabbi, is left alone after the Nazis capture her family and take them to the camps. Malke's strength and fortitude help her survive in the convent, but she is torn between her Judaic upbringing and years of praying to Jesus. The Convent is must reading for Jew and Gentile, young and old. Malke is another Anne Frank, whose courage sustains her through five years of war and leads her to final liberation and the recovery of her true heritage.
