It’s 1943, and World War II is still raging on. Norah and Gavin can hardly wait for August, when they’ll be leaving to spend the summer at Gairloch, the Ogilvies’ cottage in Muskoka. Norah in particular is looking forward to spending time with the older Ogilvie cousins, swimming, boating … and having as little to do with bossy adults as possible. The arrival of cousin Andrew is a perfect distraction, especially since, at nineteen, he’s handsome and intelligent, and Norah thinks she may be falling in love! How will she survive a summer that promises to be anything but ordinary?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Named my Daughter Norah Because of This Series! I read this trilogy as a kid and instantly fell in love with these books. Norah is such a strong, determined protagonist and she obviously left a lasting impact on me as two decades later, I named my first born "Norah."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good It is interesting to see Norah begin to grow into womanhood. She faces a unique situation in this novel as a result of WW2 requiring her to flee her homeland. I really enjoyed this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet and realistic This is a great second book to the Guests of War trilogy. It is realistic in how Norah transforms into a teen after being used to feeling only "girl feelings". A great read for anyone in her position, emotionally or otherwise.
