When I first heard there was a sequel to the beautiful The War that Saved my life, I was skeptical. I had hoped and hoped that the first book would end with a happy ending, how could we open that up? But life doesn't work like that. This gorgeous sequels' characters are beautiful, and deeply flawed, and courageous, and fearful, and hopeful, and joyous, and broken, and deeply complex. This is a war story, and a horse story, and a story about a girl overcoming tragedy, but most of all a story about putting yourself back together when you are broken. Highly recommend.
