World War I catches up to our favorite girls as Ella's beau Jules is sent overseas and the girls work to support the war effort. For the first time, the family has gentile neighbors, and Ella develops a friendship with the Irish-American Grace. Wartime sadness tinges this one with a bit more melancholy than the earlier books, yet it is full of the same lively humor, as each daughter gets her chance to shine.
