"So good you have to read it twice." -- Joan Blos

It is Germany in 1932, and Hitler is rising to power. This critical place and time in modern history is poignantly re-created through the observations of a young Jewish girl named Eva, who is caught up in the sense of dread shared by the adults around her. Edith Baer has written a novel distilled from memory, love, loss, and sorrow which depicts a girl's impressions of a nation beginning to destroy itself and an entire way of life. A Frost in the Night was nominated for the National Jewish Book Award and won the Arnold Gingrich Award for Literature when it was first published in 1980.
