It’s the Winter of 1945. With the news of the war’s end comes the prospect of Norah and Gavin’s return to England … and that means their lives are about to radically change again. Fifteen-year-old Norah is eager to see her parents— but ten-year-old Gavin isn’t so sure. He barely remembers them, and doesn’t want to leave his Canadian family, his two best friends, and his beloved dog Bosley. But when an unexpected tragedy strikes, Gavin must decide what’s truly important to him—and ultimately make the most difficult decision of his life.
