Publisher's Summary

The world is at war. A young man bravely kisses his weeping bride goodbye at the train station, leaving her all alone. Then the dreaded telegram, and a decision that nearly tears her apart...

A little girl grows into womanhood, unaware of the forces that swirl around her past and her future.

Critic Reviews

"What sets it apart is the lyricism of the narrative, and Syvia's credible childlike voice, maturing with each chapter, as she gains further understanding of the events around her." (Publishers Weekly)
