But both Elisa and her American newsman husband, John Murphy, are convinced that nowhere in Europe is safe from Hitlers 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. . . .
