"As the frightening impact of World War II creeps closer and closer to her door, eleven-year-old Ada learns to manage life on the home front"-- Eleven-year-old Ada's clubfoot has been fixed at last, and she knows now that she's not what her mother said she was - damaged and deranged. But soon Ada learns that she's not a daughter anymore either. Who is she now? World War II rages on, and Ada and her brother move with their guardian, Susan, into a cottage with the iron-face Lady Thorton and her daughter. 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 during wartime grows even more complicated. Who will Ada decide to be? How can she keep fighting? And who will she struggle to save? This masterwork of historical fiction completes Ada's journey of family, faith, and identity that began with The War that Saved My Life, and shows us that real freedom is not just the ability to choose, but the courage to make the right choice. -- from dust jacket.
