“Every war has turning points and every person too.”

Fifteen-year-old Daisy is sent from Manhattan to England to visit her aunt and cousins she’s never met: three boys near her age, and their little sister. Her aunt goes away on business soon after Daisy arrives. The next day bombs go off as London is attacked and occupied by an unnamed enemy.

As power fails, and systems fail, the farm becomes more isolated. Despite the war, it’s a kind of Eden, with no adults in charge and no rules, a place where Daisy’s uncanny bond with her cousins grows into something rare and extraordinary. But the war is everywhere, and Daisy and her cousins must lead each other into a world that is unknown in the scariest, most elemental way.

A riveting and astonishing story


  1. I'm rather interested to see this though the trailer seems to show different relationships for Daisy than just her + her cousins. Saorise Ronan is always lovely though I didn't like the last book adaption movie she did (The Host). Here's to hoping this one is much better.

  2. Oh wait, I just read that it is her + her cousins which makes this now disturbing. Daaaaang it.

  3. I know there will be many difficulties and challenges but I am determined to do it. If it does not succeed then it will be a lesson for me as well
