An absolute gem of a book! The characters from the first book are thrown together to deal with complex situations which richly expand them and bring to the forefront the questions of warring personal identities: Who am I, who was I and who should I become?
My 12 year-old and I read this aloud to each other and found another magical story revealing itself as we progressed through the book.
We started the series (sadly there are only 2 books) with The War That Saved My Life on audio CD which was marvelous and followed it up with this book.
Combing great story telling with a personal story of two children that had rough beginnings during world war two makes for a great literary experience for children 9 and up, parents too should get a lot from this series.
This is a wonderful sequel to The War That Saved My Life. I loved the history and the development of the characters and how they were impacted by the war. A story of grief, healing, love and support.
this is an amazing book, it explains things about the second world war and also explains the difficulties people in the United Kingdom had to go through. It's a real pageturner, when I first read "the war that saved my life" I was way too excited for " the war I finally won" to come out, when it finally did I got it as soon as I could, I read did it really quick, and wished there was another book.
i wanna read this XD
Every once in a while I will do some light reading. I had grabbed "The War That Saved My Life" as it sounded interesting. It was also on a topic that is usually not written about. These two novels are amazing and I have recommended them to many people. The comments that appear from other readers say it much better than I do.
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!!!
