Inhaltsangabe

Like the classic heroines of Sarah, Plain and Tall and Little Women, Ada conquers the home front as her 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 - damaged, deranged, crippled mentally as well as physically. She's not a daughter anymore, either. What is she?

World War II continues, and Ada and her brother, Jamie, are living with their loving legal guardian, Susan, in a borrowed cottage on the estate of the formidable Lady Thorton - along with Lady Thorton herself and her daughter, Maggie. Life in the crowded cottage is tense enough, and then, quite suddenly, Ruth, a Jewish girl from Germany, moves in. A German? The occupants of the house are horrified. But other impacts of the war become far more frightening. As death creeps closer to their door, life and morality during wartime grow more complex. Who is Ada now? How can she keep fighting? And who will she struggle to save?

Ada's first story, The War That Saved My Life, won a Newbery Honor, the Schneider Family Book Award, and the Josette Frank Award in addition to appearing on multiple best-of-the-year lists. This second marvelous volume continues Ada's powerful, uplifting story.

Kritikerstimmen

"The poignancy of the story is stunning, as are the author’s wit and eloquence. [Narrator Jayne] Entwistle captures both." (AudioFile)

As good as book one!

After hearing the heartbreaking story of Ada and Jamie in book one it was a pity it ended so suddenly und seemingly in the middle of the story.
It was a long wait for book two. But it was worth every minute!
Book two starts only days after book one. And Ada continues her adventures almost seemlessly.
I laughed and cried with her as in book one. I love both books very much. But hearing them narrated by Jayne Entwistle is much better, than to read them. She makes you hear and feel Adas joy, sorrow and anger almost as if she would be standing before you.
