Summary
In turn-of-the-century South Africa during the Boer War, British soldiers have forced fourteen-year-old Lettie and her family from their farm and into a concentration camp.

For Lettie, the only constant is the struggle for survival. Brave and defiant, Lettie finds comfort in memories of stargazing with her grandfather, in her dreams of becoming a writer, and in her surprising friendship with a young British soldier--a friendship that will both nourish and challenge her
