"Anna and Elena Balbusso’s cover illustration and Andrea Vandergrift’s cover design for Harboring Hope capture the intense peril of October 1943, when the Nazi forces in Denmark suddenly attempted to round up Danish Jews and send them to concentration camps. Furious at this attack on their friends and fellow citizens, Danes rushed to their aid, eager to extend helping hands. Harboring Hope is a nonfiction biography in verse about one young Danish woman who fought back. Henny Sinding joined forces with the crew of a 40’ lighthouse workboat named Gerda III to aid 300 Jews escaping to safety in Sweden."by John Schu June 13, 2022
