Annotation:
In this novel set during World War II, 13-year-old cousins Robert and Elliot uncover a long-held family secret while living with their dictatorial grandfather in a small Rhode Island town. To further complicate matters, the artistic Elliot (whose talents are belittled by his grandfather) befriends the town's only German resident--an eccentric painter who fled from Germany when his artwork was banned by the government. Winner of the 2001 Scott O'Dell Prize for Historical Fiction.

Ruminator Review
"Lisle layers her plot in a compelling, geologic way: she digs up through the surfaces of individual characters, to their families, to the community that connects them, and then to the world at large and its horrific troubles. Within these layers, she considers the meanings of friendship and enmity, truth and deception, expression and its silencing. No easy definitions are offered; rather, Lisle places readers within the gray and cloudy areas of complex life and lets us see the world through the eyes of a boy." - Christine Alfano Spring 2001
