Emily Bennett, a young English girl, has come to stay with Molly McIntire’s family to escape the bombing of London during World War Two. Emily’s parents sent her off with the reminder to be “a brave soldier for England,” but Emily doesn’t see how she can do that. Molly tries hard to make sweet, shy Emily feel at home. When Emily makes a big mistake and has to ask Molly for help, Emily shows how truly brave she is, and both girls learn what friendship really means. Author: Valerie Tripp. Paperback. 96 pages.
