This is her story, a story of circumstance and choices, survival and strength, love and betrayal. in the early years in Europe, Molly meets stateless Jews in Austria and Germany.

Some turn to smuggling goods, gold bullion and loose silver, to Spain and Italy. Molly and Jacob join them, driving across borders in a specially made car. Molly has another quest as well: Molly wants a baby for herself and for the surviving Jewish women experimented on by Nazi doctors. Molly wants to undo the wrong done to her sisters by the ultimate affirming act: Molly wants to create new life.
