This is a wonderful book -- the fictional account of young German girl becoming truly American. Her story is surrounded by historically accurate events during the World War II era. Meta offers great insights about war, love, freedom, family, and faith. This may be a great book for teens who can relate to Meta's feelings -- and gain an more personal appreciation of that period in history. It will leave you feeling very patriotic -- with a renewed thankfulness for the windows of opportunity that we have as Americans in the United States, one nation under God.
This book was difficult to put down. The story was well reasearched and the pace moved along nicely..... Looking forward to more stories by this author... Well done...
