When I first heard there was a sequel to the beautiful The War that Saved my life, I was skeptical. I had hoped and hoped that the first book would end with a happy ending, how could we open that up? But life doesn't work like that. This gorgeous sequels' characters are beautiful, and deeply flawed, and courageous, and fearful, and hopeful, and joyous, and broken, and deeply complex. This is a war story, and a horse story, and a story about a girl overcoming tragedy, but most of all a story about putting yourself back together when you are broken. Highly recommend.
Sequels can be hit or miss, but this one is a hit! In the sequel to The War That Saved My Life, eleven-year-old Ada is still adjusting to her new family, while the villagers struggle with the inevitable losses of war. Abuse, death, prejudice, and despair are met with redemption, kindness, friendship and bravery - so many emotional issues wrapped up in one great story.
Amazing storyteller. One of the most profound books I've ever read - and it's for CHILDREN! This book has everything - love, overcoming abuse, Jews escaping Germany during WW2, overcoming prejudice, dealing with grief and loss, what it means to have courage and MORE. Read it today!!!
