On her father's farm in Scotland in 1945, Lorna Anderson's life consists of endless chores, rationing, knitting Red Cross scarves, and praying for an Allied victory. So when Paul Vogel, a German prisoner of war, is assigned as the new farmhand, Laura is appalled. How can she possibly work alongside the enemy when her own brothers are risking their lives for their country? But as Lorna reluctantly spends time with Paul, she feels herself changing. The more she learns about him -- from his time in the war to his life back home in Germany -- the more she sees the boy behind the soldier. Soon Lorna is battling her own warring heart. Loving Paul could mean losing her family and the life she's always known. With tensions rising all around them, Lorna must decide how much she's willing to sacrifice before the end of the war determines their fate.

Unbelievably amazing book. This book is a historical romance followed by Lorna and Paul, each on opposing sides of World War II. Lorna and Paul grow such a strong and sweet romance it’s heart wrenching. The book kind of resembles the book thief and the boy in striped pyjamas, which I loved. The book goes into detail about the relationship Lorna and Paul had together. This book is absolutely great for romance lovers! 5/5 Stars. @momo of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Impossible love story set in rural Scotland during World War II. Innocent yet intriguing teen romance and learning of sameness among us.
