WEDNESDAY, May 11th at 7pm: THE WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE Continues


More from the final featured Book Series on LEA 9: "The War That Saved My Life", one of this year's Newbery Honor Books, among other distinctions.

Ada and Jamie have made it safely to the country and are now firmly installed with Miss Susan Smith, who is not a nice person (except she actually is). As she addresses their external wounds and neglect one by one, they begin to struggle with the internal hurts.  Both Jamie and Ada have grown up sorely neglected by "Mam," and in Ada's case profoundly abused.

It all sounds so tragic, but add to that Germans, Bombs, potential invasions.  Can anyone feel safe?
