Summary:

These are Hanna’s father’s parting words to her and her sister when their family is separated at the gates of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. For Hanna, her father’s words—and a black C sharp piano key hidden away in the folds of her dress—are all that she has left to remind her of life before.  Before, Hanna was going to be a famous concert pianist. She was going to wear her yellow dress to a dance. And she was going to dance with a boy. But then the Nazis came. Now Hanna must do all she can to keep her small family alive—even if that means playing piano for the commandant and his guests. Staying alive isn’t supposed to include falling in love with the commandant’s son. But Karl Jager is kind, and he is beautiful. And war makes you do dangerous things.
