A New York Times bestseller
Like the classic heroines of Sarah, Plain and Tall, Little Women, and Anne of Green Gables, Ada is a fighter for the ages. Her triumphant World War II journey continues in this sequel to the Newbery Honor–winning The War that Saved My Life When Ada’s clubfoot is surgically fixed at last, she knows for certain that she’s not what her mother said she was once—damaged, deranged, crippled mentally in addition to physically. She’s not a daughter anymore, either. Who is she now? World War II rages on, and Ada and her brother, Jamie, move with their guardian, Susan, into a cottage with the iron-faced Lady Thorton and her daughter, Maggie. Life in the crowded home is tense. Then Ruth moves in. Ruth, a Jewish girl, from Germany. A German? Could Ruth be a spy?
As the fallout from war intensifies, calamity creeps closer, and life all over wartime grows even more complicated. Who will Ada make a decision to be? How can she keep fighting? And who will she struggle to save? Ada’s first story, The War that Saved My Life, was once a #1 New York Times bestseller and won a Newbery Honor, the Schneider Circle of relatives Book Award, and the Josette Frank Award, along with appearing on a couple of best-of-the-year lists. This second masterwork of historical fiction continues Ada’s journey of Circle of relatives, faith, and identity, showing us that real freedom is not only the ability to select, but the courage to make the right choice.“Honest . . .
