this is an amazing book, it explains things about the second world war and also explains the difficulties people in the United Kingdom had to go through. It's a real pageturner, when I first read "the war that saved my life" I was way too excited for " the war I finally won" to come out, when it finally did I got it as soon as I could, I read did it really quick, and wished there was another book.

Every once in a while I will do some light reading. I had grabbed "The War That Saved My Life" as it sounded interesting. It was also on a topic that is usually not written about. These two novels are amazing and I have recommended them to many people. The comments that appear from other readers say it much better than I do.

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.

Sequels can be hit or miss, but this one is a hit! In the sequel to The War That Saved My Life, eleven-year-old Ada is still adjusting to her new family, while the villagers struggle with the inevitable losses of war. Abuse, death, prejudice, and despair are met with redemption, kindness, friendship and bravery - so many emotional issues wrapped up in one great story.
