Imagine if Jane Austen wrote a WWII novel set in England before, during and after the Blitz. Surrounding Lisa, a 13-yr-old refugee newly arrived on a Kindertransport train, are half a dozen "supporting" cast whose characters are so well developed that you come to know each of them and love most of them. Beautifully told with some surprising and wonderful plot twists, this is a deeply moving story. When I reached the last page, I didn't want it to end, didn't want to leave these people who feel so dear to me.— Bob
