A new love and a determined young woman create an adventure set against the backdrop of the war to end all wars.
To say Maeva Stewart is not a patient young woman is an understatement. Full of ideas, she meets life head on – usually with her best friend and neighbor, Ruby Risler. Aside from Ruby’s good qualities as a friend, she also has a brother, Leo.
After giving cookies to the men leaving the train station for Camp Douglas, Maeva begins writing letters to those she doesn’t know. Then, drawing upon an untapped well of courage, she writes to tell Leo how she feels about him.
A telegram changes everything when Leo is injured in France, and Maeva wants to go to him. Although her father says “no,” when one is determined enough, love just might find a way.
