Beautifully written and narrated, this audiobook presents two families who are impacted by war. As WWII begins, 11-year-old Beatrix Thompson's parents send her from London to live with a family in Boston. Though she misses her parents, Bea spends several years with the Gregorys and settles in as part of the family. When the war ends, she returns to London and her parents, but a part of her remains with the Gregorys. Ell Potter's narration spans countries and decades as the story follows Bea and her connection to two families and two very different lives. Potter creates believable distinctions between well- developed characters of different ages from different locales. Listeners will be captivated by this compelling story.
