This true story follows the Gold family and the oldest daughter, Shoshana. The book begins with the Jewish family's idyllic prewar life in Poland. It then follows their journey during the war years, when they were forced to hide in a cramped, secret enclosure for twenty-six months, facing appalling conditions, starvation and fear of imminent betrayal and capture. A heart-stopping testament to the human spirit.

As a history, it's difficult to know how much accuracy to attribute to the story. The authors uncanny ability to recall and describe excessive detail including frequent reference to the thoughts running through the characters heads make this read more like a novel. It also suggests to me that significant liberties may have been taken to colour the story and thus it detracts from gaining true historical insight into what would otherwise be a very fascinating story.
