The Lovereading4Kids comment

A terrific mixture of mystery and adventure in the closing moments of World War 2 as strangers and friends return from the frontline. Molly and Abigail must accept the changes that result and accept them but when something happens to their friend Adam it turns their world upside down. This is the fourth book in this sequence of World War 2 novels. Perfect for 9-12 year olds.

The first book in the series, Paradise Barn was shortlisted for the Branford Boase award - click here read more about it.
