The War I Finally Won Reviews

  • Abby Johnson
    I *loved* The War That Saved My Life and friends, this is a worthy sequel. I am in awe of Kimberly Bradley's ability to create characters that are so real, feeling emotions that are so raw that the reader can't help but feel them, too. The growth and development of these characters through the story...
  • Susan
    5 stars isn't enough for the sequel to Ada's story. Beautiful from beginning to end! ...

    Whoa, one of the few books of this year I longed to return to and mourned its end. Ada's prickly voice shines. Lady Thorton more than makes up for the one-note Mam of the first book. A thornier Marrila Cuthbert. ...

    Trying to put this review into words is so difficult. The story, the characters, the history...it was all done SO well. Kimberly allows us to see Ada to her core. She begins to help us understand the impact of neglect and abuse, the gravity of war, and depth of beginning to understand a concept that...

The bonds of family and friendship are tested and strengthened again as the war continues to wreak havoc on Ada's life. Bradley does not shy away from writing about Ada's anger and confusion and her...

    Absolutely wonderful. Even better than the first. Ada is one of my favorite characters in children's literature. Reading stories through her eyes is joyful. Other characters in the story, such as Susan, Lady Thornton, and Ruth, are just written perfectly. They are all broken in their own ways, but t...

    A perfect historical novel. Kimberly Brubaker Bradley seamlessly combines WWII realities--ration books, fire watching, displaced Jewish Germans in the village (or the home), Anderson shelters, Land Girls, air raids, secrecy--with the fictional story of Ada and Jamie, orphans after their mother's dea...
