I first read Ian Serraillier s novel The Silver Sword when I was 12 All these years later I had vague memories of what the story was about but very vivid memories of having loved it We read it in school and so it wasn t a book that I d actually come across elsewhere One day while perusing the selection at Book Closeouts I came across the book and decided to order it I wondered after all these years if it would stand up Some childhood books do and some don t The Silver Sword is the story of Polish siblings Ruth Edek and Bronia When the Nazis invade Warsaw in 1940 their father Joseph and mother Margrit are taken away leaving the children then aged 13 11 and 3 to fend for themselves We hear a little bit about the father who manages to escape a couple years later and make his way back to Warsaw There he encounters a young ruffian named Jan It s part luck and part contrivance that the children should meet up with Jan and together they set off for Switzerland in search of their parentsI am sad to say that The Silver Sword wasn t a magical experience the second time around The story is simplistic the characters are one dimensional and the happy ending is unrealistic That said it in no way diminishes my memories of what I loved about the book 30 odd years ago Then the trials of these children their hunt for safe places to sleep finding food trying to stay out of the way of the Nazis searching for their parents was both thrilling and heart wrenching I can only attribute my disappointment to the fact that I am older and jadedI think my children will love it as much as I did then
