Rumors of Peace

Ella Leffland (Author)
Backorder (temporarily out of stock)

Description

One of those deceptively guileless novels, like A Member of the Wedding and To Kill a Mockingbird, that sees more than it lets on. --New York Times Book Review

"A book of acute insight and delicious humor. . . . Absorbing and poignant and full of difficult truth." --Rosellen Brown, New York Magazine

Though radio broadcasts grow more harrowing every day, and soon, swastika-marked envelopes begin to arrive from cousins overseas, but the fighting in Europe still seems far away from the idyllic California home of ten-year-old tomboy Suse Hansen. But after Pearl Harbor, everything changes. In Ella Leffland's beautifully wrought story of a young girl's coming of age during WWII, the fighting in Europe looms behind the tranquility of family, friends, and neighbors--until the darkness of the war becomes suddenly, irrevocably real.
