The combination of Bradley's insightful and sensitive writing and Entwistle's ability to bring these characters to life with her expert narration is nothing short of masterful. This is book two in The War Series, and picks up about five days after where book one finished. It's best to start with book one if you are new to the series. Bradley artfully embeds a recap of highlights from book one into the first few chapters of book two--but do yourself a favor and listen to The War That Saved My Life first--it's really a wonderful story.
Bradley continues to create an amazing WWII homefront story. She is able to truly capture these beautiful characters struggling with living outside their comfort zones and learning the complexities of life, personal responsibility and identity. The story deals in such a positive way with the difficult concepts of loss, fear, and hardship. Further, it deftly explores love, forgiveness and complicated feelings of connection.
While this book is listed in children's fiction, I think the title transcends age and is a must listen for lovers of historic fiction. To me, this is not to be missed. Absolute perfection.

this was an accidentally written sequel to the first book. I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the first book as it continues the story of Ada and her life.
