When the Soldiers Were Gone

by Vera W. Propp, J. Bonnell
This book is designed for children and as such it is a light easy read that takes about twenty minutes. There’s not much to say about it except that when it comes to hard times people’s true colours really come through.
This family accepted a child a made him their own to protect that child and then gave him back. That would be so hard and the danger of that would be high. If a neighbor found out and turned them in the whole family could have been killed. Or if the child had not understood and was discovered everyone could have been killed.
It’s amazing to me how people will come together and fight without others even knowing it. It’s a great book
