Does losing your brother mean also losing your mother and life as you know it? That's how it feels to 13-year-old Nora in the summer of 1943. Her brother Robbie died in the war, and now Mama stays shut in her bedroom and rarely talks. Daddy has moved the family from bustling Atlanta to the farm where he grew up in the small town of New Harmony, Alabama...and Nora hates the thought of living there. Over the summer she forms new friendships, learns to handle chores on the farm, and discovers an enjoyment for drawing that helps ease her pain. But can she and her family adjust to this new life? ut away in her bedroom, barely speaking or eating since losing her son. Now Daddy has moved the family from their Atlanta home to the small town of New Harmony, Alabama. They've come to the farm where Daddy grew up, to help Uncle Lester until the fall harvest is in -- and the move may become permanent. But Nora hates the idea of living there. Over the next few months, Nora forms new friendships, learns to handle chores on her uncle's farm, and discovers an enjoyment for drawing that helps ease her pain... but can she and her family adjust to this new life?
