Book descriptionEdit

"It is 1915 and Australia is involved in the Great War. Young Australian men are dying in the trenches of Europe. To soldiers fighting in France and Gallipoli, the village of Wirreebilla in the Adelaide Hills seems peaceful and far away. But is it really so peaceful? German settlers are being treated increasingly as aliens by Wirreebilla locals and old friends become the new enemy. When Emma Shelldrake experiences this hatred first-hand, she begins to understand how difficult wartime can be for everyone."

"I wonder what war is really like? What happens if we don't win? If Germany wins, will all our German friends become our ennemies? Even Hannelore?
