Publisher Description

“Every war has turning points and every person too.”

Fifteen-year-old Daisy is sent from Manhattan to England to visit her aunt and cousins she’s never met: three boys near her age, and their little sister. Her aunt goes away on business soon after Daisy arrives. The next day bombs go off as London is attacked and occupied by an unnamed enemy.

As power fails, and systems fail, the farm becomes more isolated. Despite the war, it’s a kind of Eden, with no adults in charge and no rules, a place where Daisy’s uncanny bond with her cousins grows into something rare and extraordinary. But the war is everywhere, and Daisy and her cousins must lead each other into a world that is unknown in the scariest, most elemental way.

A riveting and astonishing story.

Hauntingly plausible

Despite the gaps that the story appeared to have throughout, all is brought to light in the end. Daisy finally finds a home of love and acceptance only to be uprooted and wrenched away. In learning to survive, she learns to actually live again. She fights all of the way to the end in order to find her way back home and to offer the healing that was once given to her back to the giver.
