This book is about a young girl, Ada, and her little brother, Jamie, who leave their abusive mother during war. They come across paths of a lady, Susan, who takes care of them until the war is over. When the mother comes back looking for them, Ada refuses to go home but goes for the sake of her and Jamie's good. One day she and her mother make a deal for them to leave without payment. The mother agrees and they go back to Susan who loves them for who they really are.
This is a heartfelt story with a twisted plot which I'm sure everyone will love! I strongly recommend this book for a gift!
