Eleven-year-old Grace Ann Brewer lives a normal life until her father joins the army in 1944 during World War II. When her family moves from Hazard to Ashland, Grace faces challenges entirely new to her--life without her father, fitting in at a new school and living in a new house are only a few. But a closer relationship with her grandmother, her spunky dog Spot and the letters she writes to her father overseas give her the courage she needs and the amazing strength to fight her own battles on the homefront. Author Nancy Kelly Allen tells the triumphant story of Grace's coming of age.
