Summary
Penny remembered how it had started. She had fallen in love with Eddie Shaffer and had leaped at the chance to become part of his life. It had started with the hope that he would love her, too, and maybe marry her someday. But that seed of hope had grown out of control into a sprawling tangled vine, uprooting secrets and changing her life completely
Summary
"In an unassuming apartment building in Brooklyn, New York, three lives intersect as the reality of war invades their lives. Young Esther is heartbroken when her father decides to enlist in the army shortly after the death of her mother. Penny Goodrich has been in love with Eddie Shaffer for as long as she can remember; now that Eddie's wife is dead, Penny feels that she's been given a second chance and offers to care for his children, hoping he will finally notice her and marry her after the war. And elderly Mr. Mendel, the landlord, waits for the war to end to hear what has happened to his son trapped in war-torn Hungary"--Cover, p. 2
