Thin Ice
by Frieda Korobkin

The vicar says: I can assure you there are many young people like yourself in Europe today who have no idea that they are Jewish.

Megan Rhys’s dilemma is one of the lingering aftermaths of the Holocaust. Will she embrace her newly discovered Jewish roots, or remain a faithful, church-going Christian?

Thin Ice takes us from Nazi Germany in the mid 1930’s and the Nuremberg Laws, to post-war Wales in the 1950’s, with a romantic detour to Israel on the brink of the 1956 war.

Praise for Frieda Korobkin’s Throw Your Feet Over Your Shoulders; Beyond the Kindertransport

“This is a poignant, compelling, unsparing account of pivotal events in Jewish history filtered through the uncompromising but tender-hearted perspective of an insightful, perceptive young girl. Beautifully written and compulsively readable, this is an important book.”

-Jonathan Kellerman, Author of the Alex Delaware novels.

    Review by Debbie Feder

    Two Jewish families in 1930s Germany face the unimaginable—danger, persecution, loss, and the consequences of difficult decisions made at vulnerable times. How is it possible to survive terrible eras in history and still remain proud of who you are?

    Written in a dramatic but reflective tone, this story immediately draws the reader in and makes one care about the characters. The characters come have divergent backgrounds but they find human connections and are surprisingly introspective. Two of the characters share a love of ice skating that remains consistent throughout the book.

    The aftermath of World War II sets the stage for an identity crisis that pulls at the heartstrings and provides grist for deep thought for mature readers of ages sixteen and up.
