In 1943, the Second World War is raging, and the Nazis have taken control of most of Europe--including Athens, where Princess Alice of Greece lives. Princess Alice is kind and accepting of different types of people. Something the Nazis are not. Born deaf, she knows what it is like to be discriminated against.

With the arrival of the Nazis, all the Jews living in Greece are in danger, including young Tilde Cohen and her mother.. On the run, they must find a safe place to hide. When they arrive, unannounced, on Princess Alice's doorstep and beg her to hide them, the princess's kindness is put to the test. Will she risk her own life to save theirs.

Includes a special section, with photographs, about Princess Alice. A real-life hero, Alice was the mother of the United Kingdon's Prince Philip, grandmother of Prince Charles, and the great-grandmother of Princes William and Harry.
