Last Train from Liguria by Christine Dwyer Hickey

Last Train from Liguria by Christine Dwyer Hickey (2011)
During the 1930s, spinsterish Bella goes to the Italian Riviera to be nanny to small, eccentric Alessandro. As the years pass, the fascist government in Italy, under the sway of Germany, begins to come down upon its Jewish population—and Alessandro is Jewish. Desperate to get Alessandro and his baby sister out of Italy, Bella takes a dangerous and heartbreaking trip across Europe. This is a beautifully written and haunting story.
