Facing a seemingly endless war, fifteen-year-old Louisa Adair wants to fight back, make a difference, do something to escape the Blitz and the ghosts of her parents. But when she accepts a position caring for an elderly German woman in the small village of Windyedge, Scotland, it hardly seems like a meaningful contribution. Still, the war feels closer than ever in Windyedge, where Ellen McEwen, a volunteer driver with the Royal Air Force, and Jamie Beaufort-Stuart, a flight leader for the 648 Squadron, are facing a barrage of unbreakable code and enemy attacks they can't anticipate. Elizabeth Wein at her finest!
