Overview

They were afraid . . .

Living on the edge of the Pacific ocean, the Callister family and their neighbors had every reason to believe that the Navy yard at Puget Sound would not be safe if there were attacks from forces across the sea.

Lindy is aware that her father draws blueprints of gunwales that fasten guns to the battleships sailing out to the Hawaiian Islands. She is intrigued by the Navy yard, and especially one of the cleaning girls with gold hair. When she learns that Sarah lives in the dark house on the hill, she wants her father to offer her a ride home.

The mysterious activities of Sarah's family prove to be alarming indulgences that threaten the "soundness" of the Callister family. "There are varieties of wars raging always," Marilyn Brown reminds us. "The battles we fight today are just as real in many ways as those of yesterday. Our methods of fighting them have changed."

...though one I probably won't read again. The description above gives a pretty good summary of the book. It covers a time span of several years, and is written from a child's perspective. This made it very difficult to understand what was happening at the very beginning, but as Lindy gets older the 'voice' of the book ages also. Although the book never goes into any real depth it does set you thinking about prejudice and loyalty.
