Review by: Janet Schmidt on Sep. 09, 2012 : star star star star star
This story always rips my heart out when I read it. I understand from the author that the idea came from a story told by her second-grade teacher, who lived in London during the Blitz. This is a little piece of another world, another time, but it resonates with sadness and truth. Mary E. Lowd is an amazing writer. You will not be sorry you sampled this wonderful short story.
