The year 1941 was pivotal in U. S. history. It was a time of transition and a time of waiting, waiting for events to occur that would change many lives forever. For eleven-year-old Maggie Calhoun it was a time of waiting, too. She was waiting for her mom's new baby to be born and waiting for her dad to get a new job out in California making airplanes for the war that was coming. That's why she and her brother, Cooper, were spending the summer with Uncle Dick and Aunt Bess in Oquawka. But Maggie was also waiting for something she couldn't name -- waiting to discover a secret she felt was being kept from her by her own family, a secret that involved her past and her future. A secret that would help her understand who she really was. With warmth and humor, author Elizabeth Van Steenwyk captures small town life in the Midwest during a unique time in America's history. She also gently reveals one young girl's self-discovery and growth during a special summer.
