A World War II story set in Alsace, where Genevieve has come to visit her grandmother (on her father's side) and is getting ready to go home, following the departure of her big brother. But while grandmere is not warm and friendly, on the day of her departure, she realizes that she is needed and returns to the farm. Caught in the German invasion, she becomes more and more involved in efforts to thwart the Nazis and support her good friend. There is mystery here, what has really happened to her brother, and revelations as she slowly learns about the life of a father she never felt close to, and as her relationship with her grandmother warms.
