World War II had begun, and London was being bombed. Most parents were sending their children to live with relatives in the countryside for safety's sake. But shy, delicate Elizabeth didn't have anyone nearby. Instead, she would have to go far away, to Ireland, to stay with an old classmate of her mother's - whom Elizabeth hadn't even met. Accustomed to a life of unspoken rules and quiet discipline, Elizabeth wasn't prepared for the large, boisterous O'Connor family. But their warmth and kindness would win her heart, slowly drawing her out. Young Ashleen - the same age a Elizabeth - would become a special friend, a "blood sister." And the bond between the 2 would grow stronger after the war's end, despite Elizabeth's return to England and her very different life there. The paths of the 2 girls would intertwine again and again - as they come of age, fall in love with handsome young boys, cope with devastating family illnesses, are forced to make agonizing choices - and see some of their dreams realized, and others lost.More
