This is the 47th book in The American Adventure Series. While these books are excellent when read in order because the characters carry through and age from book to book through generations, a single book could certainly be read in a stand-alone fashion to cover one particular topic or period in American History. Set in Seattle, Washington, in 1943-1944, we are given a glimpse of what life in the U.S. was like during World War II. Families used ration stamps to purchase items such as meat, sugar, and gasoline. Women began working in airplane production factories. There were drives to collect paper, metal, and fat. There was even a suspicious fire in a meat-packing plant. Character lessons included in this book involve keeping competitiveness in check and working together for the good of others.

I am not much of a blog reader. There's only a couple I check on occasion:
Love this girl's writing... feels like she's a long distance friend. Well, her sister is my long-distance friend, so that probably helps. Either way, what an inspiration and encouragement- you just need to check out some of the places life has taken Leah and be strengthened and inspired by the love that oozes (yes, oooozes) from her heart for Jesus, His people and His creation!
If you like nummy recipes, or have special dietary needs (or both!) check it out. ALL of her recipes are Vegan, and many can be made gluten-free. I stumbled upon it when searching for dairy/egg free treats to make for my kiddo and have gotten hooked on several recipes. Okay, "hooked on" doesn't portray it well enough. How about "addicted to"? That's more fitting. Will definitely be going back for more!
